Canadian institute looks at U.S. lead standards

From Journal of Commerce: Although there are no new lead regulations on the horizon for the plumbing industry in Canada, the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH) is keeping an eye on developments south of the border.

Earlier this month, legislation came into effect in the United States that significantly reduces the amount of lead allowed in plumbing products that come into contact with drinking water.

The Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act provides for a 36-month implementation period.
