TCNA Partners w/ Plumbing Assoc. to Develop Standards for Tiled Showers

Ontario, CA, December 6, 2021-The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) and the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) have agreed to jointly develop an American and Canadian National Standard for fabricated shower tiling kits and receptors. 

Applying the procedures of the American National Standards Institute’s (ANSI) Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) A108, to which TCNA serves as secretariat, and IAPMO’s accredited Canadian Standards Development procedures, the consensus standard will be available for use by specifiers in the United States and Canada.

The scope of the standard will address the test methods and minimum requirements for field fabricated shower tiling kits and prefabricated, tileable shower receptors, including the materials, physical characteristics, performance testing, markings and specification.

TCNA is a trade association representing manufacturers of ceramic tile, tile installation materials, tile equipment, raw materials, and other tile-related products. 

IAPMO is a worldwide leader in the plumbing and mechanical industry dedicated to protecting health and safety.
