The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO), an organizational member and accredited standards developer of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), has appointed Abraham I.

He will oversee development and maintenance of IAPMO's full line of standards, including the ANSI-accredited Z124 consensus standards for plastic plumbing products and the Z1000 series for waste disposal products.
