PRODUCT STANDARDS PROJECT TEAMS

Project teams are sub-groups of the Product Standards Committee (PSC) focused on a specific scope that may range a single or multiple product standards.

Project teams are for ASSE product standards that are less than four years old. At or before the five-year anniversary of the standard's revision, the results of the project teams are compiled and balloted with the PSC for a new revision of the standard in accordance with the Standards Development Procedures. Project team chairpersons give updates on project status to the PSC at the ASSE mid-year and annual meetings.

New project to clarify that fittings that are factory set with a maximum temp less than 110°F or 105°F are permitted. Codes and other regulations have a max temp of 110°F or less. There is a demand in the market for Temp Limiting Devices with a lower maximum temperature.

Include requirements for press-connect fittings in ASSE 1070-2015/ASME A112.1070-2015/CSA B125.70-15. Considering the special design and structure of press-connect fitting, the testing in ASSE 1070-2015/ASME A112.1070-2015/CSA B125.70-15 does not fully address the dimension, material and long-term reliability of press-connection. So it’s necessary to reference the ASME B16.51-13 for press-connect fitting.

Start or Participate in Project Teams

Project teams may be proposed to the PSC at any time. Fill out the project team proposal form and send it to the staff engineering group at staffengineer@asse-plumbing.org so that it can be forwarded to the PSC for review and ballot. Proposals for standards older than 4 years may be given consideration to the next full working group for the standard at the discretion of the PSC. For current active working groups, click here.

Participation on project teams is open to any interested party. If you are interested in applying for a project team, please contact the staff engineering group at staffengineer@asse-plumbing.org.
