ANSI/IICRC S800 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Inspection of 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.
IICRC is seeking volunteers for this Standard who are IICRC Registrants, carpet manufacturers, carpet retailers, carpet distributers, carpet installers and carpet inspectors; others involved in the textile floorcovering inspection services.
ANSI/IICRC Standards are voluntary consensus based standards that are accepted as the standard of care in the industry. Those who participate have a vote on the Standard and can influence what is included and what is not. Participation gives you a voice in the development of the Standard.
The application deadline for the S800 is September 30, 2019.
