ISSA, CIRI announce new development efforts

August 9, 2008

ISSA and the Cleaning Industry Research Institute have agreed to enter a long-term partnership for the cooperative development of science-based cleaning standards that would develop industry data, training, measurement, and certification programs. The first initiative this joint partnership will undertake is to fund a series of independent research initiatives leading to the development of a Clean Standard for K-12 schools.

“CIRI functions to make the connection between science and cleaning,” said CIRI Chairman Jim Harris. “The CIRI Symposium will feature research scientists from around the world reporting on specific issues, such as hospital- or community-acquired infectious disease and control, including MRSA, and cleaning-science research in special environments.”
