IICRC Acquires ICRA Certification Program

September 17, 2018

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) has acquired the performance assessment and certification programs of the International Cleaning and Restoration Association (ICRA).

ICRA was originally formed by a group of regional trade associations to establish a unified international trade association and performance assessment certifications. ICRA has since determined development and maintenance of assessment programs will require greater resources than the association currently possesses.

IICRC has agreed to recognize ICRA assessment certificants, registered assessors, and training providers. The institute believes developing all certifications under one roof will allow for greater exchange of information and result in better training products for the entire industry.

All other ICRA membership activities will revert to regional associations. For membership information, please contact the association in your area.

For further information about certifications or assessment, please contact IICRC at: [email protected].



The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is an ANSI-accredited, standards-setting body for the flooring inspection, floor covering, and specialized fabric cleaning and disaster restoration industries that represents more than 5,700 certified firms and 54,000 certified technicians in 22 countries.
