ANSI approves WFCA sponsored S600 Carpet Installation Standard

April 17, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-04-17 at 9.46.53 AMAnaheim, Calif.— The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has approved the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) sponsored S600 Carpet Installation Standard, developed under the expert guidance of the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). The acceptance of S600 as an ANSI standard is a significant achievement for the flooring industry, marking the first time the entire industry assembled to jointly develop a universal standard for carpet installations across both commercial and residential sectors.

“As the largest segment in the flooring industry, it did not seem acceptable that the carpet sector did not have a universally accepted ANSI Standard,” said Scott Humphrey, CEO of the WFCA. “The S600 was a much needed standard achieved through a five-year journey with countless hours of work. If not for the consensus body that included all sectors of the flooring industry, this achievement would not have been possible. I commend their efforts and congratulate the selfless industry leaders who made this possible.”
