IAPMO R&T POLICY & PROCEDURE No: R-073 Title: Certification to California Lead Plumbing Law Approved By: SM

Revision Date: 3/20/08

1.0 Scope: This procedure describes the method to certify products to California Lead Plumbing Law, lead Plumbing. This procedure is applicable to all pipe, pipe fittings and fixtures intended to convey or dispense water for human consumption through drinking or cooking. 2.0 Responsibility: It is the responsibility of Sr. Director of R&T to insure that this procedure is enforced. 2.1 Definition: Lead Free: This is defined in as: “…not more than 0.2 percent lead when used with respect to solder and flux and not more than a weighted average of 0.25 percent when used with respect to the wetted surfaces of pipes and pipe fittings, plumbing fittings, and fixtures.”

3.0 Procedure: The procedure for certifying to the aforementioned document is the same as certifying to any standard and is described in R-001. There are however some differences: Products shall comply with both the applicable performance standard as well as California Lead Plumbing Law. For example, faucets shall be listed by IAPMO R&T to the requirements of ASME A112.18.1/CSA B125.1 or NSF/ANSI 61 in order to qualify to be certified to the requirements of California Lead Plumbing Law. 4.0 Marking: California Bill AB 1953 does not require any additional markings. However, listees may add the term” California Lead Plumbing Law” or “Complies with California Lead Plumbing Law” above or in close proximity to the appropriate IAPMO R&T mark of conformity. 5.0 Proof of compliance: In accordance to the bill: Existing law prohibits the use of any pipe, pipe or plumbing fitting or fixture, solder, or flux that is not lead free in the installation or repair of any public water system or any plumbing in a facility providing water for human consumption, except as specified. This bill, commencing on January 1, 2010, covers plumbing products that dispense water for human consumption. These products include Kitchen and bathroom faucets and any other end-use devices intended to convey or dispense water for human consumption through drinking or cooking. The Law excludes service saddles, backflow preventers for non-potable services such as irrigation and industrial, and water distribution main gate valves that are 2” in diameter or above. The formula to be used to assure compliance with the Law is the following: The percentage of lead content within each component that comes into contact with water shall be multiplied by the percent of the total wetted surface of the entire pipe and pipe fitting, plumbing fitting, or fixture represented in each component containing lead. These percentages shall be added and the sum shall constitute the weighted average lead content of the pipe and pipe fitting, plumbing fitting, or fixture. The formula for calculating the California Lead Plumbing Law # is shown below along with an example:

CA Value = 0.9148

In this example, the calculated California Lead Plumbing Law Number 0.9148 fails to meet the minimum requirement of 0.25. The above table may be supplied through an IAPMO R&T recognized laboratory or from the manufacturers directly. The NSF/ANSI 61 bracketing system may be used noting that the most extreme case shall be reported, and that may not necessarily be the largest size. For certification purposes, the percentage of lead content within each component that comes into contact with water shall be determined through testing by one of IAPMO R&T recognized laboratories or through physical property sheets provided by the supplier of the components. If the physical property sheet is used as the source of the % pb content, then the highest value in the range or the actual value accompanied by a certificate from the vendor shall be used to conduct the calculations.

Issuance of the Certification of Listing A separate certificate will be issued in accordance with R-001. A stamped copy of the California Lead Plumbing Law table(s) shall be forwarded to the client along with the certificate of listing. The copy shall be kept at the manufacturing facility Continuous Compliance Inspections The Continuous Compliance inspectors shall check the continuous compliance of all components in the California Lead Plumbing Law table to the current production of listed models. This shall be accomplished through random selection of model numbers and document verification of information related to the selected models
