The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) recently led a series of meetings with carpet industry partners including the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI), Mohawk Flooring, Shaw Industries, Tandus Flooring and Professional Testing Laboratories (PTL), according to a press release. The meetings in Dalton, Ga. on April 9-10 were organized by IICRC board member John Downey and IICRC S800 chair Bill Doan.

The meetings focused on the IICRC standards development process, especially the BSR-IICRC S600 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Carpet Installation and the BSR-IICRC S800 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Carpet Inspection, as well as the CRI’s Seal of Approval (SOA) program.

The meetings were organized after IICRC chairman, Darrell Paulson, met with carpet industry representatives at Surfaces in January. In follow-up discussions, Paulson and Downey decided that a meeting in Dalton would be good opportunity to build upon and maintain the strong relationship between the IICRC and the carpet industry.

After the meeting ended, Dave Foster of TalkFloor TV interviewed CRI President Werner Braun, Lew Migliore of LGM & Associates, and the IICRC’s Winters and Washington about the meetings. The interview was broadcast in three segments and can be found at www.talkfloor.com.
