Organizational Overview

IAPMO R&T is North America’s premier plumbing and mechanical product certification agency adhering to established international codes and standards. We are accredited by American National Standards Institute and Standards Council of Canada. Since 1936, IAPMO R&T has provided building departments a listing of products that have earned the right to bear its marks of conformity.

IAPMO R&T has reduced completion time of product certification to fewer than three weeks and, in some cases, as quickly as 24 hours.

As the preferred listing agency of Manufacturers, Inspectors, and Authorities Having Jurisdiction, the IAPMO R&T brand and its reputation for quality are unparalleled in the industry. Our Marks of Conformity are widely recognized and represent the highest degree of integrity in showing compliance with established codes and standards.

Recognizing the growing importance of water conservation, IAPMO R&T provides certification for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency WaterSense program. And in response to client demands, recently added two new services that include certification to other codes (e.g. International Plumbing Code) and the “two-in-one” certification for plastic pipes and fittings (NSF/ANSI 14 & equivalent ASTM standards).

IAPMO R&T offers everything a product manufacturer looks for in a product certification body: speed, experience, attentive customer service and a resulting listing that delivers exactly as advertised.
