Since first publishing a Standard Plumbing code in 1933, PHCC has been maintaining what is known today as the National Standard Plumbing Code (NSPC) on an annual basis.
Designed to ensure the proper installation of plumbing systems, the NSPC provides local and state governments, code administrative bodies, and industry with a modern code to protect public health and safety.
To keep the code current and viable and with input from all interested parties, the NSPC Committee — comprised of licensed contractors, engineers, and inspectors — reviews the code annually and updates it on a three-year cycle.
