The 2009 edition of the Uniform Plumbing Code is updated to include comprehensive information on new technology and industry practices, and is compatible with all model building codes. The ANSI-accredited edition of the UPC provides building officials, contractors, engineers, inspectors, and installers with the minimum standards and requirements to safeguard life or limb, health, property and public welfare by regulating and controlling the design, construction, installation, quality of materials, location, operation and maintenance or use of plumbing systems.
The UPC addresses general work in most dwellings and buildings, including one- and two-family dwellings, medical health care facilities, and commercial buildings. The UPC covers several major topics, including plumbing fixtures and fittings, indirect waste systems, water supply and distribution, and traps and interceptors.
