FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Revision of ANSI/IICRC S500: 2021 Standard
Las Vegas, Nevada - January, 27, 2023. The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) announces the initiation of the revision of the ANSI/IICRC S500: 2021 Standard.
Applications are now being accepted for volunteers to serve on the Consensus Body for the revision of the ANSI/IICRC S500 Standard for Professional Water Damage Restoration.
This S500 Standard provides a specific set of practical standards for water damage restoration. It does not attempt to teach comprehensive water damage restoration procedures; rather, it provides the foundation for basic principles of proper restoration practices. It does not attempt to include exhaustive performance characteristics or standards for the manufacture or installation of structural components, materials, or contents (personal property).
The IICRC is seeking volunteers from the following stakeholder categories: restoration companies and workers; those who investigate or assess abnormal water intrusion, prepare restoration specifications, procedures and protocols, and manage restoration projects, (e.g., indoor environmental professionals (IEPs), and other specialized experts); and other potential materially interested parties (e.g., consumers and occupants, property owners and managers, insurance company representatives, government and regulatory bodies).
