BSR/IICRC S550 Standard for Professional Water Damage Restoration of Commercial Structures
The S550 is a procedural standard for performing water damage restoration in commercial, industrial institutional, and complex residential structures, systems and furniture, fixtures and equipment. The proposed standard includes: Building and Material Science; Drying Complex Materials and Systems; Safety and Health; Project Coordination, Documentation, Logistics and Risk Management; Inspections, Preliminary Determinations and Pre-Restoration Evaluations; Limitations, Complexities, Complications, and Conflicts; Specialized Experts; Restoration Procedures; HVAC; Evaluation & Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment; Historical Buildings; Government, and Healthcare Facilities.
IICRC is seeking volunteers for this Standard who own restoration companies with workers, those who investigate or assess abnormal water intrusion, prepare restoration specifications, procedures and protocols, and manage restoration projects, (e.g., indoor environmental professionals (IEPs), and other specialized experts) and other potential materially interested parties (e.g., consumers and occupants, property owners and managers, insurance company representatives, government and regulatory bodies).
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.
