IICRC Accepting Feedback on ANSI/IICRC S520

VANCOUVER, Wash. – The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is initiating the revision of ANSI/IICRC S520: 2008 Standard and Reference Guide on Professional Mold Remediation.

IICRC is currently accepting informal comments and feedback on the ANSI/IICRC S520: 2008 version in an effort to create an updated and streamlined revised standard. As this is an informal process and not part of a formal American National Standards Institute (ANSI) public review, the IICRC will not be responding to comments at this time. However, all comments and feedback are encouraged and will be accepted through May 31, 2012. All ANSI/IICRC S520: 2008 users who wish to share feedback can send comments to Mili Washington, IICRC standards director, at

The IICRC is an international, ANSI accredited standard development organization (SDO) that certifies individuals in 20+ categories within the inspection, cleaning and restoration industries. Representing more than 54,000 certified technicians in 22 countries, the IICRC, in partnership with regional and international trade associations, represents the entire industry. The IICRC does not own schools, employ instructors, produce training materials, or promote specific product brands, cleaning methods or systems. To know if a technician has received proper education and training, consumers should look for the cleantrust patch and logo, the service mark of the IICRC. For more information, visit
