Ecocleen awarded ISO 27001 Certification
Ecocleen, the commercial contract cleaning provider, has successfully achieved ISO 27001 certification in recognition of its best practice information security standards. This latest accreditation demonstrates that the company has implemented internationally-recognised standards across the business to ensure customers, staff and associates benefit from the highest level of data protection.
Ecocleen underwent detailed testing and assessment by an independent auditor to validate it complied with the requirements of the accreditation. The company will also complete an annual review and a three-year re-certification process to provide complete peace of mind that all data is continuously protected in line with the ISO 27001 standards and approved methodologies. This will ensure the secure management of financial information, intellectual property, employee details, and third-party information.
The ISO 27001 certification forms part of Ecocleen's ongoing governance of its systems and processes to ensure it meets all legal and ethical obligations, while delivering the best possible service levels. The company is now the most accredited business within the UK cleaning sector having adopted industry-leading standards covering all quality, risk, safety, environmental and energy management systems. In fact, Ecocleen says it is currently the only cleaning services provider to have gained ISO 31000 certification for risk management.
"Maintaining the highest possible standards is of upmost importance to the business," says Jean-Henri Beukes, managing director of Ecocleen. "We have a duty of care to our customers, staff and associates, so we are committed to assessing and regulating our management systems and processes to ensure we comply with the most widely-recognised and internationally-accepted standards. This all contributes to our ability to deliver the best commercial cleaning solutions in the most efficient and responsible manner possible."
With a unique franchised business model, Ecocleen delivers local cleaning solutions across a diverse mix of industry sectors backed by nationwide standards, systems and support. As a result, Ecocleen currently services 7.7 million sq.ft of office, retail, healthcare and industrial space, handling contracts of all sizes for both private and public sector organisations.
