IICRC S500 Standard receives ANSI acceptance

June 1, 2006
The Institute for Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification announced that the IICRC S500 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration received acceptance by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

The completion of the S500 marks the first ANSI-accredited standard in the cleaning and restoration industry.

"We are pleased to complete this part of the process. It wasn't always easy, but the benefit of increasing the credibility and integrity of the cleaning and restoration industry makes it well worth it in the end," said Carey Vermeulen, president of the IICRC.
