What UPHCA has accomplished for the plumbing industry!
We have on retainer a lobbying team that assists the association on matters that affect our industry. They represent us before the legislature and governmental agencies, including DOPL.
Through lobbying efforts the association ensured that the plumbing services were not included in the 2019 Sales Tax on services.
The UPHCA was a resource to the Plumbing Licensing Board to provide input into the changes to the plumbing licensing rules that became effective January 2020.
Protecting the industry by making changes in apprenticeship curriculum to include fire sprinkler installation, LP gas installation, and Hydronic-Radiant systems. This will make it very difficult for other industries to take these programs from the plumbing industry.
UPHCA is the voice of the industry for code changes and adoptions, rule making input, and legislative efforts.
Gave plumbers throughout the state a voice.
Primary voice in keeping the “I” codes IPC, IMC. IFGC, etc. from changing to the UPC.
