IICRC Continues to Seek Volunteers for S210 and S300 Standards Updates

VANCOUVER, Wash. – The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is continuing to seek volunteers to serve on the consensus bodies for the development of a new BSR-IICRC S210 and the revision of IICRC S300.

The BSR-IICRC S210 Standard and Reference Guide on Dimension Stone Maintenance and Restoration is expected to be completed in 36 months. The updated IICRC S300 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Upholstery Cleaning is set to be completed in approximately 24 months.

“As our industry continues to evolve, our standards ensure that the IICRC is providing the most relevant and consistent information,” said Mili Washington, IICRC standards director. “But our standards are only as good as our volunteers; we need their expertise and knowledge.”

The consensus bodies will meet approximately two times per year, with most of the work being completed online and via conference calls. Those interested in serving on the BSR-IICRC S210 or IICRC S300 consensus bodies should contact Mili Washington at mili@iicrc.org. The IICRC will be accepting applications through the end of July.
