BSR/IICRC S400 Standard for Professional Cleaning, Maintenance and Restoration of the Commercial Built Environment
This standard will focus on the principles, methods, and processes to clean, maintain, and restore the built environment. We define the built environment as materials, building assemblies, structures, furniture, fixtures, and equipment located inside a building envelope. Further, this standard will focus on the commercial built environment and define tasks, frequencies, production expectations, goals, and results.
The S400 Consensus Body Chair is Richard Bodo, and Vice Chair is Gary Clipperton.
The S400 Consensus Body has begun the work of drafting the Standard outline and draft Sections. The draft Standard is expected to be available for public review in 2019.
IICRC is seeking volunteers for this Standard who are manufacturers of cleaning related products; distributors of commercial cleaning goods, equipment and consumables; building service contractors; in-house or captive cleaning providers; managers and administrators of commercial facilities; manufacturers of goods and materials for the commercial built environment; specification writers; design engineers; building engineers; architects; consultants; inspectors; health professionals.
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.
Note: BSR is the ANSI Board of Standards Review that reviews and approves Standards as American National Standards. All new Standards under development are designated as BSR/IICRC till such time that they receive final approval from ANSI and can be published.
The application deadline for the S400 is June 30, 2019.
