GBAC STAR Accreditation Program on Cleaning, Disinfection, and Infectious Disease Prevention for Service Providers (GBAC STAR™ Service Accreditation Program)

The GBAC STAR Service Accreditation Program is based on a quality management system approach, which enables a cleaning organization to effectively identify, assess, control, and evaluate its program associated with cleaning, disinfection, and infection disease prevention.

  • Establish and maintain a cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention program to control and/or minimize risk associated with infectious agents for employees, customers, clients, visitors, the community, and the environment;
  • Provide assurance and establish confidence that proper cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention work practices are in place and implemented.
  • Seek and achieve GBAC STAR Service Accreditation status by implementing the requirements outlined in the GBAC STAR Program on Cleaning, Disinfection, and Infectious Disease Prevention for Service Providers.
  • Establish a framework that can be used as the basis for communication and raising awareness of best practices as they relate to cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention measures. 

ISSA CIMS® certified with honors

The Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) was created for facility service provider (FSP) organizations and applies to an organization’s management structure and performance systems and processes. It should be thought of as a framework to help facility service providers develop customer-centered organizations. Compliance with the Standard demonstrates that the organization is structured to deliver consistent, quality services.

The Standard is based on universally accepted management principles and consists of five sections of management best practices:

  1. Quality Systems
  2. Service Delivery
  3. Human Resources
  4. Health, Safety, and Environmental Stewardship
  5. Management Commitment

ISSA CIMS® GB certified with honors

To help meet the growing demand for green and the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, the Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and Certification Program includes a sixth section "Green Building" (GB) criteria, and an optional GB designation.

We have developed and use a green building program called ABC-GB to meet all of the scope of work requirements while reducing the exposure of personnel and building occupants to potentially hazardous products, equipment or procedures which could adversely affect human health and the environment, indoors and outdoors.

The program was developed to assist ABC customers to maintain a more sustainable environment. The full program ensures that ABC will provide (by cost) 60%+ of the chemicals and equipment used will be green seal approved (or equivalent), a dilution Control System to minimize chemical use to the maximum extent possible, and microfiber tools and mops and cloths will be utilized in the cleaning process. In addition the fully integrated program encourages the customer to maintain paper and trash bag purchases at a 50% (by cost) and 60% (by cost) of the hand soap to be green seal level.
