The IICRC has investigated all complaints against Jeff Bishop, Barry Costa, Dan Bernazzani and Larry Cooper, and finds no basis for a finding of any wrongdoing, and completely exonerates the well-regarded individuals involved, the organization said.


The IICRC has completed the review of complaints submitted by Charles Cressy against the organization itself and four individuals closely affiliated with the organization. The IICRC has investigated all complaints against Jeff Bishop, Barry Costa, Dan Bernazzani and Larry Cooper, and finds no basis for a finding of any wrongdoing, and completely exonerates the well-regarded individuals involved, the organization said.“The IICRC wishes to express its deepest support for these highly esteemed colleagues and the contributions they make to our industry year after year,” said IICRC President Ruth Travis. “It is part of our mission to set and promote standards and ethics, and therefore allegations such as these are taken very seriously.” The complaints were forwarded to the IICRC Ethics Committee for review. The seven-member committee considered the argument and followed the IICRC complaint-handling process outlined in the IICRC Policy and Procedures.
