CIPH's Plumbing Industry Advisory Council has evolved over the years to incorporate more mechanical, heating and energy aspects along with plumbing issues as we address policy alignment, harmonization, timely automatic adoption of model codes, and North American Regulatory cooperation.


"The new name the Plumbing and Mechanical Advisory Council (PMAC) reflects a better scope of the Council’s work as it has evolved over the last decade to include plumbing, heating, hydronics, wastewater and mechanical systems particularly their interactions in policy, codes and regulations" reports CIPH Chairman Bill Palamar. 

With anticipated federal policy changes regarding Climate Change the Council decided to further reflect the policy development and technical support work with a name change to add in the mechanical aspects to further enhance and represent CIPH members’ interests.

“PMAC has become a critical Council within CIPH as the go-to industry organization for critical input, analysis, consultation and commentary on emerging policy, codes and regulations. Natural Resources Canada, the National Research Council, and other key federal and provincial departments have become key allies to CIPH and the change allows us to better serve the industry and the government” reports Kevin Ernst, PMAC Chairman.
