The ASPNSP has been accepted as of September, 2016 as the official USA Member of the International Organization for natural Bathing water (IOB) which is based out of Bremen, Germany. The IOB is the world's umbrella organization of swimming pond and natural swimming pool experts with 12 countries' natural swimming pool organizations united to form the international federation.

ASPNSP's alliance with the IOB is an important and beneficial result of your membership in the ASPNSP and will pay dividends by increasing your knowledge of NSP design, construction and maintenance principles.
