Carvin DiGiovanni Named APSP ..., 1 Nov 2013 [cached]
Carvin DiGiovanni Named APSP Fellow The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals has named Carvin DiGiovanni, APSP Senior Director, Technical & Standards, as an APSP Fellow, the industry's top recognition for contributions and thought leadership at the frontiers of the pool and spa industry, and for exceptional potential to shape the future of the industry through intellectual and inspired leadership.
The peer-nominated honor was developed by the APSP Board of Directors in 2012 to recognize industry leaders who have demonstrated a long-standing commitment to learning and development through the presentation of educational programs, technical and business publications, and industry related research.
DiGiovanni has been working in standards since the early 1970s and brought his experience working at the American National Standards Institute to APSP (then known as the National Spa & Pool Institute). Driven by his knowledge of and experience with ANSI, he was able to get the pool and spa industry's first standards ANSI approved. Since 1983, APSP has been accredited by ANSI as the Standards Development Organization for the nation's pool and spa standards and now counts 13 American National Standards under its purview. These national consensus standards establish voluntary minimum guidelines that, when adopted by governments and agencies, have the force of law.
The International Code Council reached out to DiGiovanni about five years ago to explore incorporating the ANSI/APSP standards into the International Swimming Pool & Spa Code, which led to a memorandum of understanding between APSP and ICC and the eventual approval by the ICC Board of the ISPSC. Described by DiGiovanni as the glue that connects pool contractors and code inspectors in a closer working relationship, APSP continues to advocate adoption of the ISPSC to make pools and spas safer across the country, with many jurisdictions already adopting it.
Most recently, DiGiovanni was recognized by the FBI in 2011 with the Exceptional Service in the Public Interest Award. He has worked with the FBI for several years to increase the awareness of how chemicals used in the pool, spa and hot tub industry could be misused and threaten homeland security.
"The APSP Board of Directors congratulates Carvin on this recognition and his extraordinary work to position APSP as the go-to organization for safety and standards," says Steve Gorlin, APSP 2012-2013 chairman of the board.

"The incorporation of the ANSI/APSP-16 standard into the VGBA is a momentous occasion for the membership of APSP," said Carvin DiGiovanni, senior director, Technical & Standards. "For years, APSP has invested countless hours and resources devoted to the safety of consumers through its ANSI consensus standards program. Government recognition of our standard as being in the public interest is just beginning."
DiGiovanni explained that several other APSP standards have been or are awaiting approval for incorporation in state codes.
