Standard describes the procedures to be followed and the precautions to be taken when performing water damage restoration in residential, commercial, and institutional buildings, and the systems and personal property contained within those structures. This Standard assumes that the determination and correction of the underlying source or cause of the water intrusion leading to the water damage is the responsibility of the property owner and not the restorer, although the property owner may contract with the restorer or other specialized experts to perform these services.
Water damage restoration consists of the following components for which procedures are described in this Standard:

The IICRC is seeking volunteers from the following stakeholder categories: Restoration companies and workers, those who investigate or assess abnormal water intrusion, prepare restoration specifications, procedures and protocols, and manage restoration projects, (e.g., indoor environmental professionals (IEPs), and other specialized experts) and other potential materially interested parties (e.g., consumers and occupants, property owners and managers, insurance company representatives, government and regulatory bodies).
ANSI/IICRC Standards are voluntary consensus based standards that are accepted as the standard of care in the industry. Those who participate have a vote on the Standard and can influence what is included and what is not. Participation gives you a voice in the development of the Standard.Volunteer Here
