IKECA: International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association

IKECA, the International Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning Association, was founded in 1989 as a trade association for the kitchen exhaust cleaning industry, and joined ANSI in 2009 as a standards developer. IKECA is a nonprofit association committed to fire prevention and life safety by promoting kitchen exhaust cleaning to a higher standard. IKECA develops voluntary consensus standards for the cleaning, inspection, and user maintenance of commercial cooking operations for the purpose of protecting life and property from fire. Standards from IKECA are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: StandardsSubscriptions@ansi.org or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.

ANSI/IKECA C10-2016

Standard for the Methodology for Cleaning Commercial Kitchen Exhaust Systems

Commercial kitchen exhaust systems remove smoke, soot and grease-laden vapor resulting from cooking operations. These systems become contaminated with grease and cooking by-products over time. Accumulations of these combustible contaminants create a fire safety hazard to workers, patrons, other building occupants and property. Mitigation of this hazard requires periodic cleaning of commercial kitchen exhaust systems. This standard is intended to determine the frequency and necessity for commercial kitchen exhaust system cleaning through inspection procedures, to define acceptable methods for cleaning exhaust systems and components, and to set standards for acceptable post-cleaning cleanliness.
