International Cleaning and Restoration Association Press Release

New International Trade Association Forms as the Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Association. Your association is involved in the formation and building of this relationship

December 5, 2011

Dear Association Member,

Due to the changes and impacts of the changes in the inspection, cleaning and restoration industry, Leaders of the Cleaning and Restoration Industry Trade Associations met to develop a memorandum of understanding to further define a unified industry affiliation agreement.  

Since 1987 many organizations have been discussing bringing together the various associations to cooperate and work together to build the industry.  The trade associations that met agreed to move forward and formed a new international association named Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Association™ (ICRA), dba, as International Cleaning and Restoration Association.  

The concept of ICRA, having associations work together cooperatively, has been discussed for many years and will streamline the efforts of participating associations and improve on services and education for members.  The organizations agreed to collaborate and work with other industry related organizations and groups.  This will bring many new services and opportunities to our organization.

More information will be available in the coming weeks.  The leaders of your association are encouraged by growth opportunities and the development of the industries we work and serve.

IICRC Launches New Brand

IICRC Launches New Brand

Organization changes its name to The Clean Trust  

 (VANCOUVER, Wash.) October 14, 2011 – The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) announced today the change of its name to The Clean Trust at the fall 2011 Meeting & Instructors Symposium. Along with the new name, a new, updated, branding campaign will be rolled out in the coming year.

 “The Clean Trust lets people know exactly what we do, in a business-like, technical, professional way. We train. We set the standards. We certify. We vouch for a technician’s ability and professionalism and thereby ease our customer’s worries and concerns,” said Paul Pearce, The Clean Trust Chairman “Although the acronym of the IICRC also had a meaning; it wasn’t as direct and easy to understand.”

 The Clean Trust’s focus on cleaning, restoration and inspection, its three core areas of expertise, will remain the same as the IICRC. Additionally, the certification and standards on which the IICRC has built its reputation will remain at the core of the organization. The Clean Trust will continue as an ANSI Standard Development Organization (SDO) and pursue the development of standards for the industry as a whole, aiming to provide the most up to date education for its registrants.

 “The leadership discussed at length the benefits of a name change and ultimately decided that it was in the best interest of our registrants to move forward with a new name,” continued Pearce. “The name, The Clean Trust, reflects our mission to identify and promote an international standard of care that establishes and maintains the health, safety and welfare of the built environment.”

 The Clean Trust signifies the expansion and growth of the IICRC. For almost 40 years, the IICRC has built a strong reputation within the cleaning, restoration and inspection industry, but there has been an unclaimed opportunity to gain momentum with other audiences, particularly the general public. The change to The Clean Trust name provides additional marketing opportunities for the organization to continue to propel its growth.

 Materials with the new name and an updated design will gradually rollout through the next year. Available now for registrants and Certified Firms are new ID cards, a general overview brochure, patches, and decals. An introductory video will also be shown during training courses. In the coming months, the organization will provide updated standards covers, trade show booth, newsletter and website.

 For more information, please contact The Clean Trust headquarters at (360) 693-5675, or visit the current website (www.iicrc.org) to review the list of frequently asked questions regarding the new brand.
