The mission of the Water for Indonesia Now (WIN) Project is to assist officials in Indonesia in adopting, implementing and enforcing a plumbing code. The IAPMO group has been working closely with the National Standardization Agency of Indonesia (BSN) to develop and implement an Indonesian National Standard (SNI) through the adoption of the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC). Other key project activities include personnel training to the standard, the third party testing and certification of plumbing products for the Indonesian market to meet standards, and the development of best practices associated with effective national standards bodies, notably transparent and participatory standards-setting processes. The adoption of an internationally recognized UPC will help Indonesia address clean water and effective sanitation issues integral to public health by ensuring the safe delivery of water via properly installed and certified products. Further, this project will provide the means necessary for US plumbing manufacturers and others to access the market by removing technical barriers to trade.
