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:
- 28 of the most significant changes made to Chapters 7 through 15 of the 2018 IPC; and
- Every one of the more than 70 amendments made to the 2018 IPC when Utah adopted it as the new plumbing code for the state, effective July 1, 2019.
It uses a cut-and-paste approach as the best way to show the changes from 2015 to 2018 in the IPC as well as the cuts and additions to the model code made by Utah amendment. Each significant IPC code change is discussed to clarify the nature of the revision, the reasons for the change, and any effects on working plumbers in Utah based, in part, on the deliberations of the Technical Committees. Each amendment is discussed either separately or in combination with other, related amendments in order to clarify the intent and impact on working plumbers. Numerous links are also provided to the model codes, statutes, and rules referenced in the codes and amendments.
This class is intended to accompany another AYPO class on significant changes to Chapters 1 through 6 of the 2018 IPC.
