Time to Review the National Standard Plumbing Code

IAPMO encourages all members and industry representatives to review the proposed code changes for the 2024 National Standard Plumbing Code (NSPC). 

The NSPC Committee accepted proposals for changes to the 2024 NSPC from July 1, 2021, through April 1, 2022. Changes approved at the August 11 public hearing that will be in Atlantic City, N.J., and will appear in the 2024 NSPC. The NSPC Committee reviews the code annually and updates it on a three-year cycle.

The proposed changes to the 2024 NSPC will be available to the public for downloading and viewing after June 6 at www.iapmo.org/NSPC. No hard copies of the proposed changes will be available at the public hearing; interested parties are encouraged to download the file.

The public hearing for review of the proposed code changes for the 2024 NSPC will take place 8 a.m.-5 p.m. ET, Aug. 11, at the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City. Attendees needing hotel accommodations can make reservations by calling (888) 516-2215 and referencing Group Code: ST08NS2. The deadline to receive the NSPC negotiated room rate is July 10.

IAPMO urges its members and other interested parties to get involved in the code development process. Designed to ensure the proper installation of plumbing systems, the NSPC provides local and state governments, code administrative bodies and the industry with a modern code to protect public health, safety and welfare.

“The NSPC is developed by all segments involved in the plumbing-heating-cooling industry: contractors, inspectors, manufacturers, engineers and labor,” said NSPC Chairman Frank Maddalon. “The NSPC has played a vital role as the state code for New Jersey and the testing code authority for master plumbers and inspectors since 1977.”
