The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) has restructured its global regions in an ongoing effort to establish and advance globally recognized standards and certifications for the inspection, cleaning, restoration and installation industries, according to the organization. The IICRC’s four new global regions include The Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific and Japan.

“Through our work with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and other international standards-setting organizations, we’re experiencing greater interest for our standards and certification programs,” said Tony Wheelwright, IICRC chairman. “This decision will enable the organization to expand its reach and paves the way for future global initiatives.” 

The IICRC’s previous regions included the U.S., UK, Oceana and Japan, and it currently has offices in each of those regions. 

“We continually look for ways to advance our mission and enhance global recognition for our standards and certification programs,” added Jenny Boymal, international vice president, IICRC. “By restructuring our regions, we will be better positioned to further the international scope of our efforts.”
