The IICRC standards serve to develop common, industry-accepted language and terminology that enables us to more universally discuss concepts and procedures regarding cleaning, inspection and restoration.
The IICRC is an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) member and accredited standards developer. ANSI is responsible for overseeing the development of national consensus standards and verifying that the requirements for due process, consensus, and other criteria for approval have been met by the standard’s developer.
The use of an American National Standard (ANS) is completely voluntary. However, some have been adopted as code or regulation by local, state or federal authorities. They are also considered “state of the art” in the area of contamination control.
The IICRC serves as the secretariat for several ANSI committees that develop cleaning and restoration related standards.
