Rolling Meadows, IL - Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) is pleased to announce that the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) has joined PMI as a charter Certifier Allied Member.

PMI has recently opened its membership to accredited certifier organizations who are qualified to certify products to plumbing codes and consensus standards and also to supplier companies who provide raw materials and sublet processing, e.g., brass suppliers, steel suppliers or plating services to the plumbing industry. PMI recognizes the important role certifiers and suppliers play in the plumbing manufacturing industry and believe the Allied Member category is the ideal way to include these organizations in PMI's mission to be the voice of the industry.

Allied Members receive a number of the benefits of PMI membership, including access to PMI publications, attendance at PMI's semi-annual meetings, invitations to receptions, dinners and other social events held in conjunction with the PMI semi-annual conferences and more, all at a special Allied member rate.

"IAPMO plays a major role in our industry," said PMI Executive Director Barbara C. Higgens. "Through our Memorandum of Understanding and now with this new relationship, we are continuing to explore ways to work more closely together. We are pleased and proud to welcome IAPMO as an affiliate member of PMI."

"IAPMO has long recognized the important role PMI plays for not only its members but as a representative organization for major plumbing product manufacturers throughout the world. We are delighted to be the first charter Certifier Allied Member and we are committed to working closely with PMI and its many members to further the objectives of our MoU," noted IAPMO Group CEO GP Russ Chaney.
