ANSI/IICRC S520

ANSI/IICRC S520 Standard and IICRC R520 Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation

The ANSI/IICRC S520 is a procedural standard for the remediation of mold damaged structures and contents. The ANSI/IICRC S520 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 and R520 are 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.

ANSI/IICRC S520-2015 Standard and IICRC R520 Reference Guide is published as two separate documents: the standard itself and a supplementary reference guide. The procedural standard is supported by the reference guide. The intent is to use the principles outlined in the reference guide as a tool to better understand and apply the standard itself. However, the reference guide is not considered part of this standard.

The S520 Consensus Body Chair is Jim Pearson and Vice Chair is Scott Armour.

WHAT ARE CERTIFICATION CLASSES?

Certification classes are classes taught by an approved Instructor or School. Each class taught varies from one day to five days, depending on course content and requirements. Online learning is also available in select categories for those who cannot attend a class.

WHAT IS AN APPROVED SCHOOL?

As a certifying and standards-setting body, the IICRC owns no schools and has no instructors on staff. Rather, to fulfill its education commitment, the IICRC approves schools and instructors that apply to and meet the criteria set forth by the board of directors.

Will instructors travel?

The IICRC does not provide recommendations for any approved instructor, rather, any individual seeking to attend a class is required to contact an approved instructor from the directory provided for any inquires related to their services.
