ASSE Seeks Working Group Members to Update Standard for Medical Gas Systems Personnel

ASSE International is seeking members for a working group to update ASSE/IAPMO 6000: Professional Qualifications Standard for Medical Gas Systems Personnel.

The ASSE 6000 working group members will be assisting the Professional Qualifications Standards Committee (PQSC) with the continued development of this American National Standard. The working groups will operate in accordance with ASSE’s accredited procedures for standards development: IAPMO/ASSE PP-1 (Policies and Procedures for Consensus Development of American National Standards).

“This standard addresses the need for professional qualifications standards for the plumbing and mechanical industries, specifically the minimum qualifications for people working on medical gas and vacuum systems,” said Terry Burger, ASSE/IAPMO’s Director of Standards Development. ASSE/IAPMO 6000 is based on the requirements of NFPA 99, for which there is a new 2024 edition.

The working group meeting will be held in person in February. The date and location will be announced as soon as they are finalized.

The deadline to apply is January 15. Applications may be downloaded through this link.

Industry stakeholders—including installers, manufacturers, plumbing professionals, building owners and managers, engineers, AHJs, and the general public—are invited and encouraged to apply to participate.

If you are interested in serving on this working group, please contact ASSE Standards at [email protected] with a completed application and résumé by the January 15 deadline. Please contact Terry Burger at [email protected] with any questions.
