Valve Repair Council

Valve Repair CouncilThe Valve Repair Council (VRC) is an affiliate organization of the Valve Manufacturers Association (VMA) of America. Prospective members must be recommended by a VMA member, pass an extensive audit and be voted in by the VRC membership.

The VRC was formed to provide OEM authorized and approved repairers and rebuilders a means to meet the following objectives:

  • To promote safety through proper repair and rebuilding of valves.
  • To establish and promulgate guidelines for proper repair service.
  • To educate manufacturers, rebuilders and customers on the importance of proper service and the dangers inherent in substandard service.
  • To publish a list of member’s qualified service facilities for the benefit of the end-users.
  • To provide a forum for the legal exchange of information that will advance the quality and integrity of service.
  • To promote open discussion between OEM’s, repair shops and users on problems relating to maintenance and repair.
  • To cooperate with standards development bodies and regulatory agencies in the development of appropriate standards and regulations pertaining to service.

United Valve has been a proud and active member of the VRC for 10 years. Company employees have served on the board of directors, as vice-chairman and as chairman of the organization.
