revision of any document or documents emanating from a Technical Committee Project (such as the Uniform Plumbing, Mechanical, Solar, and Swimming Pool Codes). All
persons wishing to participate on the TCC must complete an application for Technical Committee Membership (see link below), including a resume of qualifications.
Once an application (and resume) has been received by IAPMO, it is forwarded to the Executive Committee Secretary for consideration by the Executive Committee.
