(VANCOUVER, Wash.) March 23, 2011 – The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) announces the formation of a consensus body for development of the IICRC S540 Standard and Reference Guide for Trauma and Crime Scene Clean Up. Jim Holland, IICRC Standards Committee Chairman, announced that the committee is now accepting applications for the consensus body and its chapter committees.

“This committee will be made up of people directly and materially affected by the standard,” said Holland. “The standards committee will be accepting applications during the next 45 days for the consensus body, which will be made up of no more than 15 members from all available and interested segments of the industry.”

The 15-member standard consensus body will meet approximately four times per year, with most of the work being completed online and via conference calls. The first in-person meeting will take place in July 2011. The new standard for trauma and crime scene clean up is set to be completed in approximately 36 months.

If you are interested in submitting an application to volunteer for the working chapter committees, please contact Larry Cooper, IICRC Standards Contractor at or by contacting IICRC headquarters at (360) 693-5675.
