ANSI/IICRC S800

ANSI/IICRC S800 Standard and Reference Guide for Inspecting Textile Floor Coverings

ANSI/IICRC S800: 2014 includes inspection of textile floor covering including carpet and rugs. The S800 establishes a procedural standard and reference guide for professionally inspecting textile floor coverings. The Standard defines basic operational procedures and techniques for inspecting/evaluating: carpet types, characteristics and conditions; specification; installation procedures; and post-installation maintenance and cleaning. This enables professional inspectors to determine appropriate procedures for inspecting textile floor coverings. S800 is not written to teach detailed inspection procedures; numerous manuals, videotapes, workshops and seminars are available to teach comprehensive textile floor covering inspection procedures.

This standard was created for use primarily by professional inspectors, and secondarily for carpet manufacturers, product suppliers, building contractors, architects, specifiers, designers, distributors, flooring retailers, end-users, facility managers, institutions and others involved in the textile flooring inspection industry.

S800 Consensus Body Chair is Mark Violand, and Vice Chair is Lew Migliore.

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?
