BSR/­IICRC S740 Standard for Professional Restoration of Fire and Smoke Damaged Personal Items


The BSR/­IICRC S740 Standard for Professional Restoration of Fire and Smoke Damaged Personal Items will provide a specific set of practical principles, methods and processes to evaluate and restore fire and smoke damaged porous and non­porous personal items, commonly known as contents or personal property. This standard will also establish methods and processes to document the chain­ of­ custody of these items, including: inventory, packing, storage, cleaning, verification and return to the customer. This standard will outline the proper handling, storage and care of these items.


The IICRC is seeking volunteers for this Standard with knowledge and experience in contents cleaning or restoration; the property, casualty and liability insurance industry; brokers and agents who write property, casualty and liability policies; consumers who require the services described by this standard; and anyone who represents an insured, or holds a lien on contents damaged by fire and smoke. 

Why Participate?

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.

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.



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.
