The Clean Trust to Revise S520 and S300 Standards

Seeks volunteers for working chapter committees

VANCOUVER, Wash. – The Clean Trust (formerly the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification) announces the formation of two consensus bodies for the revisions of the “ANSI/IICRC S520 Standard and Reference Guide on Professional Mold Remediation” and the “IICRC S300 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Upholstery Cleaning.” The Clean Trust standards committee is now accepting applications for volunteers to serve on the consensus bodies.

“To ensure up-to-date knowledge and quality service throughout the industry, the consensus bodies will be made up of people directly and materially affected by the standards,” said Jim Holland, The Clean Trust standards committee chair. “The standards committee will be accepting applications for volunteers from all available and interested segments of the industry through the end of March.”

The consensus bodies will meet approximately two times per year, with most of the work being completed online and via conference calls. These updated standards for professional mold remediation and professional upholstery cleaning are set to be completed in approximately 24 months.

Those interested in submitting an application to participate on the S520 or S300 consensus bodies, please contact Mili Washington, The Clean Trust standards director, at mili.washington@thecleantrust.org or contact The Clean Trust headquarters at (360) 693-5675.
