57 varieties... of ISSA's Cleaning Industry Management Standard Certification

* 57-ISSA-GBACS.jpgISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, announced yesterday that 57 companies have achieved the Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) Advanced by GBAC certification.

Created by the industry, for the industry, CIMS Advanced by GBAC is the first global, consensus-based management standard that outlines the primary characteristics of a successful, quality cleaning organisation including disinfection infection prevention protocols.

"Earning CIMS Advanced by GBAC certification demonstrates that organisations are dedicated to a higher standard of cleanliness, which is essential given the biorisks that exist today," explains ISSA executive director John Barrett. "Using CIMS Advanced by GBAC as a management framework allows cleaning organisations to maintain quality, efficiency and customer satisfaction."

Relevant for in-house operations and outsourced building service contractors of all sizes, CIMS Advanced by GBAC leverages five core elements of management best practices and requires participants to meet 100% of the mandatory elements and 60% of the recommended elements, per section. An ISSA-accredited third-party assessor completes an on-site evaluation to validate that the cleaning operation follows documented systems and processes that support cleaning for health.
