This Standard is currently in development and is not available on the Standards Webstore.
This standard describes the principles, processes, and procedures for assessing the presence, intensity of impact and boundaries of fire residues and odors affecting a building, building systems (e.g., Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning (HVAC)), and contents after a fire event. The fire event can occur within the building, an adjoining building(s), or building(s) in the vicinity impacted by an external or internal fire, other than wildfires. This standard also describes the practical principles, methods, and processes including equipment, tools, and materials, for the restoration cleaning and fire odor management of buildings and contents. This standard also addresses contractor qualifications, administrative requirements, procedures, development of the Restoration Work Plan (RWP), documentation of project-related events, and compliance with Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).
This standard does not comprehensively address:
This standard does not address all safety concerns associated with performing restoration work. Restorers should establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices to determine the applicability of regulations established by AHJ prior to the use of this standard.
Restorers should be aware of the potential for regulated hazardous materials to be present in buildings. When hazardous regulated materials are suspected to be present, restorers shall perform their work in a manner consistent with regulations established by the AHJ.
