IICRC Standards

What are IICRC Standards?

ANSI/IICRC industry standards are the official resources for the cleaning and restoration industries. They are created by a group of volunteers, each with a diverse background and experience. After a peer review process, the standards receive an ANSI accreditation and are published by the IICRC. These standards are used by everyone who participates in the restoration and insurance repair industries including contractors, insurance professionals, attorneys, legislatures and more!
