Work begins on ISSA standard

May 18, 2006
The ISSA recently hosted the first in a series of technical committee meetings to create a new Quality Management Standard designed to help facility service providers develop customer-centered, quality cleaning organizations.

"The standard is being designed to accept and support the various existing association certification programs within the cleaning industry, which we believe will help reinforce their value to FSPs as resources for achieving a well-run cleaning organization," ISSA Standards Development Manager Dan Wagner said.

The new standard will apply to the management of an entire cleaning organization - either in-house or building service contractor - not cleaning practices.
