Uniform Evaluation Service
No, we didn't misspell insurance. Insurance is for after the fact, when you need financial restitution after something has gone wrong.
Unlike insurance, Uniform Evaluation Services provides assurance for yourself, end users and building regulators that the code- which sets the bar for building component acceptability- has been satisfied. We ask the tough questions, and when we get answers we are happy to provide you with an IAPMO Uniform Evaluation Report that tells the report holder, and the reader, that someone with the right expertise asked the right questions and got the right answers.
Our Assurance Program benefits everyone. The code official saves time by using our detailed review, freeing staff to perform other tasks. Manufacturers do not have to answer the same questions over and over again. Consumers are assured that the product has been evaluated against the building code enforced in the places they work and live.
It's a thorough process, but not onerous. See for yourself.
Built on the reputation of the foremost source of uniform codes and standards in the plumbing and mechanical fields, Uniform Evaluation Service is the agency of choice for building officials everywhere.
For more than 70 years, IAPMO or its subsidiaries have been involved in product recognition in the form of listings or evaluation reports. IAPMO is the industry leader in plumbing and mechanical product recognition worldwide, and operates a listing program more than twice the size of the “other guys’” evaluation program. About five years ago, industry asked IAPMO to enter the building product arena and begin producing Uniform Evaluation Reports. We work hard to bring the same drive, determination and great customer service into the building arena that made IAPMO’s listing program such a great success.
Uniform ES is the smart option for your company’s evaluation needs. Building products, materials, and designs bearing the Uniform ES Mark of Conformity are trusted by contractors, inspectors, officials, and Authorities Having Jurisdiction as having met the most rigorous standards and are in full compliance with applicable codes.
