BrassCraft - 100% (AB1953) Compliant Products
BrassCraft, the leader in innovation, quality, and customer service with headquarters and manufacturing facilities in the US, is proud to announce that we will launch a complete line of products that complies with the new legislation in California (AB1953) and Vermont (Act 193). We have been working on a solution for this anticipated change since 2007.
An Explanation of the Legislation
In official terms, this legislation prohibits the sale of plumbing fixtures with a wetted surface containing more than a weighted average of .25% lead. Basically, the law virtually eliminates the lead content of pipes, pipe fittings or plumbing fittings and fixtures intended to convey or dispense water for drinking or cooking. The law is effective January 1, 2010 in California and Vermont.
What is the timing for the new legislation?
The new California and Vermont standards take effect January 1, 2010.
What does BrassCraft have to offer?
As a leader in the plumbing category, we’re proud to offer a full range of compliant products including brass stops, solid brass fittings, hot water connectors and Speedi Plumb® risers. As in the past, we will have a full line of products for any and all of your plumbing needs.
Will Compliant Speedi Plumb® PLUS connectors perform in water heater applications?
Absolutely. Speedi Plumb® PLUS connectors are extremely durable and ideal for any job, including water heater applications.
When will these products hit the market?
We will begin to offer products on July 1, 2009. Our full line of products will be available by September 30, 2009. The law states that all products sold in California and Vermont beginning in 2010 must be compliant. Our launch schedule was designed to give you ample time to adjust your inventories for the law’s effective date of January 1, 2010. BrassCraft packaging will display a checkmark to designate 100% compliance.
