The ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) Plumbing, Mechanical and Fuel Gas (PMG) Listing Program recently issued PMG-1237 to Conbraco Industries, Inc. (Apollo Valves). The program certified Conbraco’s forged full port threaded and press end brass ball valves to the 2012, 2009 and 2006 editions of the International Plumbing Code®, International Residential Code®, Uniform Plumbing Code and the 2010 National Plumbing Code of Canada. With the ICC-ES certification, Conbraco can distribute its products in both the U.S. and Canada. The ICC-ES PMG program is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC). All Canadian provinces and territories accept the ICC-ES cPMG mark of conformity.
“Conbraco sought a reputable certification body that offered quick turnaround time, combined with the quality and value ICC-ES offers,” said Dawn LaFleur Qualley, ICC-ES PMG Certification program manager. “We provided them with the solution to expand their markets in Canada and throughout the U.S.”
“We are more than satisfied with the level of service and short amount of time it took us to receive our ICC-ES PMG listing,” said Bill Hooks, Conbraco Product Engineer. “By using the ICC-ES listing program, we can get our product to market very quickly. We highly recommend any manufacturer seeking PMG product distribution within the U.S. or Canada to contact ICC-ES for their certification needs.”
