Is This union Ok behind walls


I'm Plumbing a shower and I was wondering if these can be concealed behind drywall without access per the UPC

Unions need to remain accessible- cover with an access panel.
Or transition using "sharkbite" couplings. Copper and CPVC have the same ID. Then no access is needed
