The World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) has announced the official approval of the S600 Carpet Installation Standard developed under the guidance of the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).
The initiative, which was sponsored and primarily underwritten by WFCA, took five years from inception to approval. The ANSI Board of Standards Review (BSR), which is responsible for the approval and withdrawal of ANSI Standards, made the final decision to pass the Standard on April 9, 2015. Official public notification of the certification will appear in the April 17th ANSI Standards Action publication. At this point, unresolved objectors have been given the opportunity to appeal the Standard to the ANSI Board of Standards Review. The S600 will become official if no appeals are received within 15 business days of the announcement.
