IICRC Seeks Volunteers for New BSR/¬IICRC S530 and BSR/IICRC S590 Standards

November 2, 2018

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is seeking volunteers to serve on consensus bodies for the development of two new Standards: BSR/­IICRC S530Standard for Indoor Environmental Assessment for Suspected Mold Contaminated Structures; and BSR/IICRC S590 Standard for HVAC Cleaning and Decontamination in a Water Damaged Environment.

For those interested in serving on either the BSR/­IICRC S530 or BSR/­IICRC S590 consensus bodies, please consider the following:

  • The BSR­/IICRC S530 Standard for Indoor Environmental Assessment for Suspected Mold Contaminated Structures will establish a proper methodology and protocol for the inspection and evaluation of structures known or suspected to have mold contamination, and will promote proper methodology and processes for the assessment of mold contaminated structures.

    IICRC is seeking volunteers for this Standard from restoration companies and workers; those who investigate or assess abnormal water intrusion, prepare restoration specifications, procedures and protocols, 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); property owners and managers, occupants and tenants, professional remediators, those who investigate mold complaints, property restorers, indoor environmental professionals, environmental consultants, industrial hygienists, building engineers, insurance companies and regulatory bodies.

    Those interested in submitting an application to serve on the S530 consensus body should visit https://www.iicrc.org/SBSRIICRCS530 for more information and to download the application form. 
     
  • The BSR/IICRC S590 Standard for HVAC Cleaning and Decontamination in a Water Damaged Environment. This new document will provide a specific set of practical standards for HVAC cleaning in a water-damage restoration project.

    IICRC is seeking volunteers for this Standard from restoration companies and workers; those who investigate or assess abnormal water intrusion, prepare restoration specifications, procedures and protocols, 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).

    Those interested in submitting an application to serve on the S590 consensus body should visit https://www.iicrc.org/SBSRIICRCS590  for more information and to download the application form.

Consensus body members can expect to begin work on the standards by early 2019 with nearly all meetings being held online and via conference calls. The new Standards are expected to be completed in approximately two years. Complete applications should be emailed to IICRC Standards at standards@iicrcnet.org.
