IICRC Developing New S210 Standard on Dimensional Stone Maintenance and Restoration and Revising S300 Standard on Professional Upholstery Cleaning

VANCOUVER, Wash – The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) announces the formation of consensus bodies for the development of a new BSR-IICRC S210 Standard and Reference Guide on Dimensional Stone Maintenance and Restoration and the revision of IICRC S300 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Upholstery Cleaning. Applications are now being accepted for volunteers to serve on these consensus bodies.

“As new materials and processes are introduced into our industry, we remain committed to ensuring the IICRC’s standards provide credible, up-to-date information,” said Mili Washington, IICRC standards director. “Through the development of the S210 standard, we are upholding our promise to the industry to establish an international standard of care and provide our registrants with a knowledgeable industry voice and resource.”

The consensus bodies will meet approximately two times per year, with most of the work being completed online and via conference calls. The new BSR-IICRC S210 standard will encompass the initial, routine, periodic and restorative maintenance methodologies for dimensional stone flooring and fabrication and is set to be completed in approximately 36 months. The updated IICRC S300 standard for professional upholstery cleaning is set to be completed in approximately 24 months.

Those interested in submitting an application to participate on the BSR-IICRC S210 or IICRC S300 consensus bodies, please contact Mili Washington, IICRC standards director, at mili@iicrc.org.
