International Council of Building Officials building inspectors inspect buildings according to regional ICBO codes. These were regional model codes established by three organizations: the ICBO, Building Officials and Code Administration, and the Southern Building Code Congress International. In 2000, the International Code Council established a standardized code system for use with all types of building construction and inspection.
The International Code Council (ICC) is a membership association dedicated to building safety and fire prevention. ICC develops the codes and standards used to construct residential and commercial buildings, including homes and schools.
The International Codes, or I-Codes, published by ICC, provide minimum safeguards for people at home, at school and in the workplace. The I-Codes are a complete set of comprehensive, coordinated building safety and fire prevention codes. Building codes benefit public safety and support the industry's need for one set of codes without regional limitations.
Fifty states and the District of Columbia have adopted the I-Codes at the state or jurisdictional level. Federal agencies including the Architect of the Capitol, General Services Administration, National Park Service, Department of State, U.S. Forest Service and the Veterans Administration also enforce the I-Codes. The Department of Defense references the International Building Code for constructing military facilities, including those that house U.S. troops, domestically and abroad. Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands enforce one or more of the I-Codes.
The IICRC is a not-for-profit certification institute that operates certification programs for the restoration, cleaning and inspection industries. For example, the IICRC has certification programs in the restoration industry for water damage restoration, fire damage restoration and even the specialties like mold remediation or odor control. We also do work in the cleaning industry - be it carpet cleaning or upholstery cleaning hard surface floor cleaning, or ceramic tile cleaning. Then in the inspection industry we do inspections for third party carpet claims: marble and stone and wooden laminate flooring inspections. We do this mostly to give an unbiased third party opinion. Our participants go through a prescribed training program, take a standardized exam and re-register every year so that we know that they met their continuing education requirements.
Another major function of the IICRC, which goes with the certification, is to be stewards or keepers of the industry standards and develop standards of procedure and operation. We update the procedural standards for carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, water damage restoration, mold remediation and keep those working with other industry organizations. We get those standards published and/or available to the public. Those standards are often used even in court cases in the case of mold and such. They are used by organizations to make sure that people are indeed following the industry procedures and then our certification training is used to teach technicians and companies how to follow those standards with industry standards.
CFI is a Non-Profit Trade Association for professionals in the inspection, cleaning, remediation and restoration industry. We maintain Shareholder Group A status with the IICRC and are an affinity association of the World Floor covering Association. (WFCA)
