The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) has officially announced the International Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Council of Associations (IICRCA), according to a press release. This international trade association was initially approved by the IICRC executive committee and board of directors in 2010.

The IICRCA is a council of associations that represent the cleaning, restoration and inspection industries and will provide education, legislative, networking and advocacy services to industry professionals, companies and supporting organizations involved in the inspection, cleaning and restoration industries. It will monitor and increase member awareness of government regulatory activities and serve as a voice on behalf of the industry.

“The IICRCA has the goal of unifying the industry and spread the mission and standards of inspection, cleaning and restoration worldwide,” said Tony Wheelwright, the current IICRCA president and chairman. “The association will aim to be a central resource for industry professionals to grow their businesses and better serve their customers.”

The initial board of directors of the IICRCA will be made up of the current executive committee of the IICRC. The IICRCA’s first full board of directors will be elected by the association membership within the next 12 months.

To enable networking between association members, the IICRCA has committed to the launch of its first trade show – The Show – and is currently in the planning stages for the fall of 2013. The IICRCA will also support the 2013 trade shows of all of the IICRC’s Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) partners.
