The IICRC has announced the formation of a consensus body for the development of a new BSR-IICRC S220 Standard on Hard Surface Floor Covering Inspection, according to a press release. Applications are now being accepted for volunteers to serve on this consensus body.

“As new materials and processes are introduced into our industry, we remain committed to ensuring the IICRC’s standards provide credible, up-to-date information,” said Mili Washington, IICRC standards director. “Through the development of the S220 standard, we are upholding our promise to the industry to establish an international standard of care and provide our registrants with a knowledgeable industry voice and resource.”

The consensus body members will meet approximately once per year in person, with most of the work being completed online and via conference calls. The new BSR-IICRC S220 Standard will include inspection of hard surface floor coverings including stone, marble, laminate, wood, ceramic and resilient. The document will establish a procedural standard for professionally inspecting hard surface floor coverings. The new Standard is expected to be completed in approximately 36 months.

 Those interested in submitting an application to participate on the BSR-IICRC S220 consensus body should contact Mili Washington, IICRC standards director, at mili@iicrc.org. For more information, visit www.iicrc.org.
