IICRC S520 receives ANSI approval

October 13, 2008

On August 7, the American National Standards Institute notified the IICRC Standards Committee of the approval of the IICRC S520 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation. The S520 is the second ANSI-approved IICRC standard, along with the IICRC S500 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration, which was published in April 2006.

“This accomplishment represents another milestone in cementing the credibility and expertise of the IICRC and its registrants,” said IICRC President Ruth Travis. “It’s taken a lot of hard work by very dedicated professionals to get this completed.”

The S520 has been under revision for more than 4 ½ years, and was scheduled to be available for industry distribution and use by mid September.
