VGB Updates

On August 18, 2020 the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission voted to delay effective date of ANSI/APSP/ICC-16 2017 (Drain Cover Standard).

The effective date has been moved from November 24, 2020 to May 24, 2021 to provide drain cover manufacturers additional time while dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic that has disrupted manufacturers and test labs. More details can be found on the PHTA website.
