Utah adopted the 2018 International Plumbing Code (IPC) as amended for Utah as the new plumbing code for the state, effective July 1, 2019. This four-hour class covers the significant changes made to the 2018 in Chapters 1 through 6 – the Chapters that contain every code provision on water supply piping, fixtures, and appliances.
Each change is discussed to clarify the nature of the revision, the reasons for the change, and any effects on working plumbers in Utah. This discussion is based primarily on the deliberations of the Technical Committees, supplemented by reactions in industry blogs and publications. Numerous links are also provided to the model codes, statutes, and rules referenced in the codes.
This class is intended to accompany another AYPO class on significant changes to the 2018 IPC, Chapters 7 through 15 and the amendments made by Utah when adopting it as the basis of the state plumbing code.
By the end of this class students will be:
- Up-to-date on the model IPC codes from the most critical Chapters in the book, covering definitions, fixtures, water heaters, and water supply
- Able to navigate the various amended and model codes and other rules and regulations that apply to plumbing work
- Prepared to participate fully in the review processes used to update the IPC every three years
