R&R IICRC Monthly Update: November 2018
Standards Subscription Website
The IICRC’s Standards Subscription Website allows IICRC Instructors, Schools, Certified Firms and registrants to access standards, reference guides, technical papers and multimedia publications from anywhere an Internet connection is available. The site is located at http://publications.iicrc.org.
Standards website subscriptions are available in basic and premium packages. The basic package provides online access to all current IICRC standards and reference guides. The premium subscription also provides access to historical standards, new and updated technical papers, MoU partner organizations’ reference documents and standards, and multimedia publications including instructional videos. Both are offered as annual subscriptions.
For a demonstration on how to use the new subscription site, a how-to video is available on the IICRC’s YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/theiicrc.

Why Standards Matter
Do you have questions on IICRC Standards – what they are and why they’re important? Check out the IICRC’s “Why Standards Matter” video discussing the fundamental role that Standards play in everything the IICRC does, as well as how people can get involved in the standards-setting process.
The IICRC is developing two new fire and smoke damage restoration standards and is seeking volunteers to serve on consensus bodies for each:
- The BSR/IICRC S710 Standard for the Development of a Scope of Work in a Fire and Smoke Damaged Environment will provide a specific set of practical standards for the development of a scope of work in a fire and smoke damaged environment.
- 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 non-porous personal items, commonly known as contents or personal property.
Those interested in submitting an application to serve on the S710 or S740 consensus bodies should visit https://www.iicrc.org/page/IICRCStandards for more information and to download the application form.
