February 12, 2020 IICRC Seeks Input on New Infection Control Standard

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is now accepting volunteers to assist in the development of a new remediation standard for infection control.

BSR/IICRC S410 Standard for Infection Control During Professional Cleaning and Maintenance of the Commercial Built Environment will outline practical principles, methods and processes to clean, sanitize, and evaluate the cleaning of the built environment where verifiable, hygienic cleaning is required. Cleaning-industry professionals interested in volunteering for the standard’s consensus body can download application forms from the IICRC’s website.

“In the wake of the current coronavirus outbreak, IICRC announces this important standard impacting the health of our nation,” said Brandon Burton, IICRC standards chairman. “We’re excited to build out our standards offerings and invite those with a thirst for knowledge and expertise in these niche areas to join us.”

IICRC is an ANSI-accredited standards-setting body for the flooring inspection, floor covering, and specialized fabric cleaning and disaster restoration industries. Organized in 1972, IICRC currently represents more than 5,700 certified firms and 54,000 certified technicians in 22 countries. For more information, visit
