IICRC Begins Drafting S600 Carpet Installation Standard and Reference Guide

The IICRC announces that the organization has filed the proper notification with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and will begin drafting the S600 Carpet Installation Standard and Reference Guide.

The new standard is being sponsored by the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) and the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI). The IICRC S600 Consensus Body Standard Committee will be chaired by James Mullins of Shaw Industries, and Barry Costa of Aspire Educational Institute will serve as the vice-chair for the committee.

“Having WFCA and CRI involved in the creation of the standard is an example of how our industry works together to achieve the best result. We know that with their involvement, we will be able to create a standard for carpet installation that will be accepted across the industry,” said IICRC Chairman Paul Pearce.
