The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification announces the completion of the IICRC S520 Standard and Reference Guide for Mold Remediation.

"The IICRC Mold Remediation Standard represents the culmination of over three years of cumulative effort in analyzing industry needs, researching the scientific literature, and writing and reviewing dozens of drafts," said S520 Standards Chairman Larry Cooper. "There were over 120 people involved in writing S520, and it went through a peer and legal review process involving more than 350 people. S520 will set the standard for mold remediation worldwide for years to come."

The new standard can be purchased by completing an IICRC order form, available online at www.iicrc.org.
