ICC-ES PMG Receives EPA Approval to Certify Flushometer-Valve Water Closets
The ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) Plumbing, Mechanical and Fuel Gas (PMG) Listing Program has been approved as a licensed certifier of Flushometer-Valve Water Closets. This approval was granted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under its WaterSense program that is designed to help save water and the environment.
“This recently added scope gives ICC-ES PMG a complete set of capabilities for all EPA WaterSense specifications,” said Dawn LaFleur-Qualley, Program Director. “With this approval, ICC-ES, the industry’s leading product evaluation and listing company, gives plumbing manufacturers the best choice for their certification needs.”
The ICC-ES PMG program offers a full range of certification activities for both the United States and Canada. ICC-ES PMG can certify products to AB1953, NSF/ANSI 372, S.3874 (Federal Law for Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water) and the requirements of WaterSense. The Flushometer-Valve Water Closets certification, like other WaterSense certifications conducted by ICC-ES- PMG, is free of charge as long as the client has a listing for that product to the performance standard.
The WaterSense specification for Flushometer-Valve Water Closets is available on the WaterSense website at http://www3.epa.gov/watersense/products/flushometer-valve-toilets.html Manufacturers and distributors who produce or sell these products are eligible for certification.
