Maritime Region Business Meeting #2: PIAC Forum
The PIAC (Plumbing Industry Advisory Council) will hold a forum for the Maritime Region during the afternoon of November 24, 2016. The following is a brief summary of what the PIAC is all about and the purpose of our “forum” is to allow the PIAC to explain their role and give us an update on their activities. After their presentation, the attendees will have ample time to pose questions to the panel, consisting of Kevin Wong, (CIPH), Kevin Ernst, (General Manager of OS&B), and Joe Rogers, Building Code Coordinator, Office of the Fire Marshall, Nova Scotia.
The Plumbing Industry Advisory Council (PIAC) is a council within CIPH that promotes uniformity in Canadian plumbing codes, regulations and standards. Their purpose is:
- To promote uniformity in Canadian plumbing codes, regulations and standards.
- To ensure that any deviations from uniformity are necessary.
- To inform, educate and lobby as necessary to achieve uniformity.
- To maintain a working liaison with standards writing organizations, certification organizations, code writing bodies, inspection authorities and government ministries.
- To serve as a technical advisory committee in the evaluation and development of plumbing codes and regulations, standards, certification to standards and interpretation of plumbing codes.
- To evaluate and provide comment and/or technical advice as necessary regarding proposed changes to regulations which affect product.
The Plumbing Industry Advisory Council was created in August 1970 to provide the industry with a source of technical information and viewpoints to CSA International, and ultimately to the Chief Plumbing Inspectors and code writers who make up the Canadian Advisory Council on Plumbing.
