The purpose of the City of Tempe's Plumbing and Mechanical Codes is to provide minimum standards to safeguard life, health, property and public welfare by regulating and controlling the design, construction, quality of materials, use, location and maintenance of all plumbing and mechanical systems within the City. In this regard, the Plumbing and Mechanical Code Advisory Board of Appeals interprets the provisions of the Plumbing and Mechanical Codes; advises the Mayor and the members of the City Council regarding revisions of the Plumbing and Mechanical Codes; approves the use of alternative construction materials and methods; establishes certification standards for maintenance plumbers; and hears appeals of decisions made by the Building Safety Director. (City Code Chapter 8, Sec. 110.3.3)
The Plumbing and Mechanical Code Advisory Board of Appeals has five (5) members composed of a plumbing contractor, a mechanical contractor registered in Arizona, a mechanical engineer registered in Arizona, a physician or public health officer, and an architect registered in Arizona.
The members of the Plumbing and Mechanical Code Advisory Board of Appeals serve a three-year term but may serve until a successor has been appointed. Meetings of the Plumbing and Mechanical Code Advisory Board of Appeals are held at least once every three months in the City Council Chambers located at 31 East 5th Street.
