LAS VEGAS | NORTHBROOK, IL  — IICRC currently is welcoming volunteers to serve on the consensus body of the new BSR-IICRC S400 Standard for Cleaning, Maintenance, and Restoration of the Built Environment. ISSA, the worldwide cleaning association, is assisting and partnering with IICRC to help develop the volunteer pool.

The BSR-IICRC S400 will work to define tasks, frequencies, production expectations, goals, results, principles, methods, and processes in the commercial built environment.

“This is an important project for our industry,” Brant Insero, the director of education, training, certifications, and standards with ISSA, said in a release. “The more volunteers we can get to assist, the better the end result of the S400.”
