ANSI/IICRC S520/IICRC R520-2015

STANDARD AND REFERENCE GUIDE FOR PROFESSIONAL MOLD REMEDIATION

The ANSI/IICRC S520 is a procedural standard for the remediation of mold damaged structures and contents. The ANSI/IICRC S520 is based on reliable remediation and restoration principles, research and practical experience, and attempts to combine essential academic principles with practical elements of water damage restoration for technicians facing "real-life" mold remediation challenges. The S520 and R520 are written for use by those involved in the mold remediation industry, and is the result of collaboration among microbiologists and other scientists, public health professionals, industrial hygienists, remediation contractors, restoration service companies, cleaning and restoration training schools, trade associations that service the professional restoration industry, allied trade-persons and others with related professional and practical experience.  ANSI/IICRC S520-2015 Standard and IICRC R520 Reference Guide is published as two separate documents: the standard itself and a supplementary reference guide. The procedural standard is supported by the reference guide. The intent is to use the principles outlined in the reference guide as a tool to better understand and apply the standard itself. However, the reference guide is not considered part of this standard.


IICRC R520-2015

REFERENCE GUIDE FOR PROFESSIONAL MOLD REMEDIATION

The ANSI/IICRC S520 Standard summarizes most of the significant and important procedures and methodologies of a mold remediation project, while the IICRC S520 Reference Guide restates and further explains those procedures and methodologies, and provides additional background information, which supports the Standard. Although the material in the Reference Guide does not carry the official status of a Standard, the two sections complement one another and should always be considered in tandem.
