ROCKVILLE, Md. - The three leading national trade associations involved with indoor air quality (IAQ) announced that they have combined forces. The unification of the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), the American Indoor Air Quality Council (AmIAQ), and the Indoor Environmental Standards Organization (IESO) brings together over 5,500 professionals involved with the prevention, investigation, remediation, and research of IAQ problems.

IAQA will serve as the membership and training organization, AmIAQ is the recommended certification body for IAQA, and IESO will be the standard-setting group for the industry.

"Having these three prestigious groups come together will allow IAQA to move forward to elevate the services and training provided to our members," said Glenn Fellman, executive director of IAQA. "This has made our unified voice that much stronger to increase IAQ awareness and effective measures within the industry."

"The sheer number of people affected by mold and other IAQ issues and the associated costs have really been a driving force behind the need to unite the three prestigious groups so that as one unified body we can elevate the training, certification, and necessary standards to a level that the public and industry can count on to deal with their IAQ problems," said Robert Baker, IAQA president.
