IICRC Seeks Input on Drug and Nicotine Cleaning Standard
The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is now accepting volunteers to serve on a consensus body for the development of a new remediation standard for nicotine and cannabis stains.
BSR/IICRC S900 Standard for Professional Remediation of Illicit Drugs, Cannabis and Nicotine Residue will outline practical standards for the professional cleaning and restoration of surfaces contaminated by nicotine, cannabis, and illegal drugs. IICRC anticipates the standard will address required personal protective equipment, remediation best practices, and employee safety
The IICRC expects to begin work on the new standard by the fall of 2019, with a proposed completion timeline of approximately two years. Cleaning-industry professionals interested in volunteering for the standard’s consensus body can download application forms from the IICRC’s website.
