IICRC Announces S100 Committee Recruitment

July 3, 2007 – VANCOUVER, Wash. – The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification is currently revising the S100 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Carpet Cleaning prior to submitting the standard for approval by the American National Standards Institute. The IICRC is seeking volunteers from all areas of the industry to help revise the standard and volunteers to serve on the S100 Consensus Body Standard Committee.

“We’re looking for professionals who are dedicated to moving this project forward,” said IICRC Standards Chairman Barry Costa. “With each new Standard revision comes new challenges and we need a group of people that are excited about the next phase in the evolution of this standard, which is preparing for ANSI accreditation.”

The timeline for completion of the S100 revision is approximately 18 months, and the committee will meet on average four times per year. However, sub-committees continually work on-line and via conference calls. There are between 25 and 30 members on the voting committee of the S100 Consensus Body Standard Committee and more than 100 volunteers assigned to specific sub-committees and topics.

Membership of the IICRC S100 Consensus Body Standard Committee is open to all persons who are directly and materially affected by the standard activity in question. Please note this does not mean that all who apply will be accepted. Participation in the committee is not conditional upon membership in any organizations, nor unreasonably restricted on the basis of technical qualifications or other such requirements.

The next committee meeting will be held in October adjacent to the IICRC Board of Directors meeting in Vancouver, Wash. To apply for committee membership, please e-mail S100 Committee Chairs Doug Bradford ( or Bill Yeadon ( or contact IICRC headquarters at 360-693-5675.
