Fittings and Fixtures

Overview

Fittings and Fixtures Testing and Certification:

CSA Group is assessing the compliance of your products with applicable safety and performance requirements such as U.S. and Canadian health effects and performance standards referenced by the International Plumbing Code (IPC), the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC), and the National Plumbing Code of Canada (NPC).

Regardless of where you manufacture your faucets, valves, showers, lavatories, sinks, and other plumbing fittings and fixtures, we offer services that evolve with your industry and provide timely turnaround, quality work, and technical expertise.

CSA Group tests and certifies various fixtures and fittings to CSA, ASSE, IAPMO, ASME, and ASTM standards, including the United States Code of Federal Regulations. We evaluate the safety and performance of fixtures and fittings according to the standards outlined below.
