In support of their long-standing relationship with International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO), The City of Los Angeles submitted the names of three candidates to IAPMO’s Technical Committees as they renewed their membership with the organization. The IAPMO’s Technical Committees are made up of industry professionals who review the proposals made to amend the codes. The code development procedures promoted by the IAPMO are accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for the development of American National Standards.

A Report on Proposals (ROP), compiled by the IAPMO’s Technical Committees can be downloaded at the IAPMO website at, or can be mailed upon request. Also in California, the process for creating the 2001 California Building Codes is moving forward. The codes being prepared for California's 2001 cycle include:

  • The 1997 Uniform Building Code
  • The 2000 Uniform Fire Code
  • The 2000 Uniform Plumbing Code
  • The 2000 Uniform Mechanical Code
