Illinois PHCC Mission Statement

Through a commitment to excellence, our Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors strive to protect the environment, health, welfare, and safety of the residents of Illinois.

Government Relations: The need to be heard in Springfield and Washington, DC has never been greater. Our members profit from pro-active legislation that is conducive to good business, and protected from legislative actions that are detrimental to the business climate. At the state level, protection and strengthening of the Illinois Plumbing License Law is one of our top priorities.

Representation with Regulatory Agencies: The Illinois PHCC has representatives on many regulatory/advisory boards within state government. This representation provides the plumbing & piping industry with input into the regulatory process and also helps to prevent actions that may be harmful to our industry. Following are some examples of PHCC representation with state agencies:Illinois Plumbing Code Advisory Council

Industry Promotion: The Illinois PHCC is always working to promote our industry throughout the state and even the nation. The Plumbing Coalition for Public Health and Safety is just one example of how we work to “get the word out” about licensed, professional plumbers.
