VANCOUVER, Wash. – February 22, 2007 – IICRC Standards Chairman Barry Costa announced today the appointment of Jim Pearson as the new chairman of the IICRC S520 Consensus Body. Pearson will oversee the final stages of completing the Second Edition of the IICRC S520 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation.

Pearson has been a member of the S520 Consensus Body since the beginning of the rewrite of the document. He has chaired several Chapter Committees for the S520 including the Inspection and Preliminary Determination Chapter and the HVAC Chapter. He previously participated in the writing of the 1st Edition of the IICRC S520 and Co-chaired the Safety and Health Chapter.

“We are looking forward to Jim’s leadership and working with him in the completion of the document,” said IICRC Standards Chair Barry Costa.

IICRC President Ruth Travis expressed her gratitude to Pearson for stepping up to the leadership position and for his considerable contribution to the Standard and S520 Committee.

Cliff Grost of Multi-Maintenance in Chicago will continue to serve as the Vice-Chair of the IICRC S520 Committee.

IICRC Standards Consultant Larry Cooper stated, “The S520 Consensus Body has completed the Peer Review Process internally and the document is currently being reviewed by the editing committee. Jim’s leadership will help the committee finalize the process of updating the information in the S520. The entire committee has done an outstanding job in bringing very valuable information to the committee meetings, updating the chapters and sections. The updates to the S520 will be very valuable for the mold remediation industry as a whole.”
