Plumbing, Mechanical, Fuel Gas and Swimming Pool Codes (PMG)

The International Code Council’s PMG Team consists of exceptionally experienced and knowledgeable staff from Government Relations (GR), Technical Services (Codes & Standards Development), Evaluation Services (ICC-ES PMG product certification program) and the Solar Rating & Certification Corporation (ICC-SRCC). Read more about these individual PMG programs by clicking on the appropriate buttons below.

The Code Council has historically used the acronym PMG to refer to its model codes, standards, services and resources related to plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas. With the release of the International Swimming Pool and Spa Code (ISPSC) in 2012, it has expanded to include swimming pools and spa topics. 

The Code Council’s model PMG codes include the International Plumbing Code, International Mechanical Code, International Fuel Gas Code and the ISPSC. These individual members of the Code Council’s family of coordinated codes are used by communities nationwide to protect health, safety and welfare within buildings. Communities chose Code Council’s PMG codes because they know we offer a superior family of codes, developed through a fair and transparent consensus process.
