IAPMO Contributes to WHO Global Guidance on Lead in Drinking Water


IAPMO has contributed its plumbing expertise to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) global guidance that addresses lead exposure from drinking water systems.

The guidance was developed by a working group that included the University of North Carolina, World Vision International, UNICEF, and the WHO. IAMPO was a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) member, contributing technical assistance to support the assessment and management of lead contamination in drinking water supplies.

“We are proud to have contributed our plumbing science expertise to this important advancement from the WHO,” said Dain Hansen, IAPMO’s executive vice president of government relations. “Keeping people safe globally is a core mission for IAPMO and working alongside global water experts to produce this technical guide means the message is being widely delivered.”
