IICRC Newsletter August S520 Standard for Public Revision

IICRC S520 Standard Available for Public Review

The 2008: S520 Standard for Professional Mold Remediation was made available for public review and comment in early July as part of the ANSI 45-day public review period. The review period will close on Aug. 19, 2013. The Reference Guide is also available for informal peer review and comment until the same date.

IICRC S520 is a procedural standard and reference guide for the remediation of mold-damaged structures and contents. It is based on reliable remediation and restoration principles, research and practical experience, and attempts to combine essential academic principles with practical elements of water damage restoration for technicians facing “real-life” mold remediation challenges.

The S520 is written for use by those involved in the mold remediation industry, and is the result of collaboration among microbiologists and other scientists, public health professionals, industrial hygienists, remediation contractors, restoration service companies, cleaning and restoration training schools, trade associations that service the professional restoration industry, allied trade-persons, and others with related professional and practical experience.

To access the draft Standard and Reference Guide and Comment Forms, visit All comments must be submitted to IICRC Standards Director Mili Washington at no later than August 19, 2013.
