Clean Trust plans for independent trade association

Home News Clean Trust plans for independent trade association

Vancouver, Wash. –The Clean Trust, formerly the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), is moving forward with plans for an independent international trade association initially approved at The Clean Trust executive committee and board of directors meetings in 2010. The Clean Trust is currently finalizing the structure of the organization and expects to launch the new association in 2012. The association will provide education, programs, services and products to individuals, companies and supporting organizations involved in the inspection, cleaning and restoration industry.

“The Clean Trust is deeply committed to providing the cleaning, restoration and inspection industry with the tools and resources necessary to grow their businesses and better serve their customers,” said Darrell Paulson, The Clean Trust chairman of the board. “This trade association will internationally unify the industry and support collaboration to pursue common goals and interests.”

The association will provide members with education and access to research and specialized information. It will also direct government affairs activities, including increasing member awareness of state and federal legislative activity throughout the United States and facilitating relationships on behalf of the inspection, cleaning and restoration industry. The association will have various membership categories and The Clean Trust board is currently structuring a model agreement to have regional chapters.

The Clean Trust will continue, with participation from the entire industry, to develop standards for inspection, cleaning and disaster restoration. It will also continue to approve schools and instructors who provide training and certification for industry professionals. Both organizations will offer networking and professional development opportunities for industry professionals.

For additional information on the association, contact Patrick Winters, The Clean Trust president, at 360-693-5675, ext. 3221.
