IICRC Publishes Revised S500 Guide; Welcomes ARCCA as Shareholder

June 26, 2000
The IICRC launches its eagerly awaited revised version of its S500 Guide..

The IICRC has released the second edition of the IICRC Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration S500. The revision, which supercedes the 1994 standard, includes major changes to the microbiology and biocide use sections, as well as the inspection section. The new standard conforms to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) format and will be submitted for ANSI approval. To purchase a copy, please contact the IICRC at (360) 693-5675.

The IICRC also announced the recent sales of 500 shares of its stock to the Australian Restoration and Carpet Cleaning Association (ARCCA). With the addition of the ARCCA, 18 regional, national and international trade associations, and four original founding members, own IICRC stock. Each entity owns a block of 500 shares and has one vote on the Board of Directors. “No one has controlling interest,” the IICRC says.
