AHRI and CIPH sign cooperation agreement – March 2102
June 1, 2012 - The Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) and the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH) have signed a mutual cooperation agreement designed to help each association promote common policy positions and policy statements, communicate those positions to their respective governments and code bodies, and avoid, to the extent practicable, conflicting policy positions.

The agreement, which was signed during the CMX-CIPHEX show in Toronto, Ont., on March 22, 2012, by AHRI president and CEO Stephen Yurek and CIPH president Ralph Suppa, allows for regular consultation between the two organizations on issues of mutual interest, and also for attendance at each other’s meetings.
AHRI is comprised of 300 member companies which produce more than 90% of the residential and commercial air conditioning, heating, water heating, and commercial refrigeration equipment made in North America. Through its certification program, standards, advocacy, and other activities, AHRI strives to help save energy and improve productivity.
CIPH is a not-for-profit trade association which represents the interests of companies that manufacture, sell, and distribute plumbing, hydronic heating, PVF and waterworks products and services.
