The APSP News just announced that the International Swimming Pool and Spa Code (ISPSC) is open for comments through August 12, 2011. This code has already gone through one round of comments, so this round is intended to address issues raised in a meeting of the International Code Council in Dallas in mid-May. Your comments will be considered at a Final Action Hearing in early November in Phoenix (exact date to be determined).
For more background on this code plus two other codes pool owners and operators must comply with, see our earlier post on the Aquatics Blog.
APSP members are asked to email Jennifer Hatfield with suggestions for comments the APSP should consider by August 1, 2011.
Find a copy of the code draft with hearing comments in this PDF on the International Code Council website (download in a new window). Comments can be submitted directly to the ICC by mail or email at:
Chicago District Office
4051 West Flossmoor Road
Country Club Hills, IL 60478-5795
Remember: this code may be considered for adoption in your state within the next few years. Now is the time to review it and ask for changes.
