NATIONAL MASTER PLUMBERS ASSOCIATION OF THE PHILIPPINES (NAMPAP)
In 1935, seventeen Master Plumbers resolved to unite all practitioners in order to modernize the practice of plumbing and to provide clients with professionalized plumbing services. They organized the NAMPAP and had it registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Subsequently, the Association was accredited by the PRC on October 2, 1975 as the fourteenth accredited professional organization.
The NAMPAP pioneered in efforts leading towards the creation of the Department of Public Services in the City of Manila and the passage of City Ordinance 2411, “The Plumbing Code for the City of Manila.” It also initiated the formulation of the National Plumbing Code of the Philippines which was promulgated on January 28, 1959.
In the ensuing years, the Association actively engaged itself in the formulation of the National Building Code, the passage of the law creating the National Waterworks and Sewerage Authority, and the enactment of Republic Act No. 1378, “Plumbing Law,” on June 18, 1955. On January 28, 1959, the National Plumbing Code of the Philippines prepared by NAMPAP was promulgated and approved by Malacañang. NAMPAP assisted in the passage of the law creating the National Waterworks and Sewerage Authority (NAWASA).
In 1966-1969, the Board of Master Plumbers and NAMPAP prepared a curriculum for Master Plumbing/Plumbing Engineering approved by the Department of Education and first introduced at the Feati University.
On June 28, 1967, the First Amendment to Republic Act 1378 was approved, which effected the inclusion of “Asbestos-Cement Pipe” as an approved plumbing material. Before Martial Law in 1972, Republic Act No. 6541 otherwise known as the “Building Code of the Philippines” was passed with the “National Plumbing of 1959” as referral code in full text.
In 1997, NAMPAP President Jaime M. Cabase spearheaded the drafting of the Revised Plumbing Code. Finally, in October 1999, NAMPAP submitted the same to the Board of Examiners for Master Plumbers. After careful review, the Professional Regulation Commission adopted the Revised Plumbing Code of 1999 which President Joseph Estrada approved pursuant to Section 4 of Republic Act No. 1378 last December 1999.In 1999, NAMPAP initiated the filing of a legislative proposal to upgrade the trade of Master Plumbers to the profession of Plumbing Engineers.
