IICRC Calls for S400 Non-Voting Section Committee Volunteers

LAS VEGAS – November 28, 2017 – The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is seeking volunteers to serve as non-voting section committee members on the consensus body for the BSR-IICRC S400 Standard for Cleaning, Maintenance and Restoration of the Commercial Built Environment. Applications are now being accepted.

 

The BSR-IICRC S400 will focus on the commercial built environment and define tasks, frequencies, production expectations, goals, results, principles, methods and processes to clean, maintain and restore the built environment (i.e. materials, building assemblies, structures, furniture, fixtures and equipment located inside a building envelope).

 

“This standard is being created because the commercial cleaning industry does not currently have industry consensus standards on the proper principles, methods and processes to generally clean and maintain the built environment,” said S400 Chairman Richard “Bo” Bodo. “Having an ANSI standard for commercial cleaning principles, methods and processes would provide guidance and a singular platform for the industry.”

 

Volunteers with knowledge of the manufacturing of cleaning related products; distributors of commercial cleaning goods, equipment and consumables; building service contractors; in-house or captive cleaning providers; managers and administrators of commercial facilities; manufacturers of goods and materials for the commercial built environment; specification writers; design engineers; building engineers; architects; consultants; inspectors; and health professionals are recommended.

 

Non-voting members can expect to begin work on the standard by the end of 2017 with nearly all meetings being held online and via conference calls. The new Standard is expected to be completed in approximately two years.

 

Those interested in submitting an application to serve as section committee members on the S400 consensus body should visit http://www.iicrc.org/standards/s400/ to download the application form. Complete applications should be emailed to IICRC Standards at

IICRC Calls For Volunteers in Development of First Ever Field Guides

LAS VEGAS – Aug. 7, 2017 – The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is seeking volunteers to serve on the development committees for two, first of their kind, field guides to help improve the health and safety practices of professional disaster restoration and cleaning professionals.

The new documents titled, “IICRC Field Guide for Safety and Health for Professional Cleaners” and “IICRC Field Guide for Safety and Health for Disaster Restoration Professionals,” will supplement existing IICRC restoration standards and certification classes.  The guides will include valuable information about safety and health hazard identification procedures, safe work practices and control methods that prudent disaster restoration and cleaning professionals should employ.

“Most members of the cleaning and restoration industry rely on regulations to guide their safety and health policies, however these regulations don’t always take into account the specific needs of our industry,” said Howard Wolf, IICRC Standards Chairman. “These new field guides serve to address the needs of all participants of the cleaning and restoration industry, including cleaners, restorers, managers, end users, insurance adjusters and indoor environmental professionals.”

Committee members can expect to begin work on the standard by the end of 2017 with all meetings being held online and via conference calls. The new field guides are expected to be completed in approximately one year.

Those interested in serving on a field guide committee can fill out the downloadable application forms at the links below:

Complete applications should be emailed to IICRC Standards Director Mili Washington at , by Sept. 30, 2017. Please note, separate application forms are required for each field guide committee.

For questions regarding the IICRC field guides or the application process, email
