IAPMO Head Assists with Maintaining UPC Versus IPC


(l-r) Dir of Govt Affairs Kika Bukoski, President Matt Brady, IAPMO’s Dwight Perkins,
and Business Manager Val Ceria.
Dwight Perkins, Sr. Vice President of IAPMO (International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials), Field Services, recently visited Local 675 to assist with testimony in favor of maintaining the UPC on the island of Kauai. Building Code Bill 2612 would allow the IPC (International Plumbing Code) to be used as an alternate code. The UA and Local 675 support the UPC (Uniform Plumbing Code) for the jurisdiction of our licensed plumbers. Business Manager Val Ceria, President Matthew Brady, and Government Affairs Director Kika Bukoski are working with Dwight Perkins on this critical bill. Val Ceria expressed, “We are taking proactive steps to preserve the integrity of the State Plumbing Code and working diligently to protect the code through the legislative process.” Val and Kika met with Derek Kawakami, Mayor of Kauai and Kauai Council Vice Chair Ross Kagawa for their assistance.
