The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification announced that a revised draft of the BSR/IICRC S500 Standard for Professional Water Damage Restoration is now open for public review and comments from January 10 to February 24.
The standard provides a specific set of practical guidance for water damage restoration. It does not attempt to teach comprehensive water damage restoration procedures. Instead, it provides the foundation for basic principles of proper restoration practices.
BSR/IICRC S500 does not attempt to include exhaustive performance characteristics or standards for the manufacture or installation of structural components, materials and contents (personal property). The draft standard is available for review and comment as part of the ANSI 45-day public review period.
