23 companies achieve ISSA’s CIMS certification

ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, has announced that 23 companies have achieved the Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) certification.

Created by the industry, for the industry, CIMS is the first consensus-based management standard that outlines the primary characteristics of a successful, quality cleaning organisation.

Relevant for in-house operations and outsourced building service contractors of all sizes, CIMS leverages five core elements of management best practices and requires participants to meet 100 per cent of the mandatory elements and 60 per cent 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.

“Earning CIMS certification demonstrates that organisations are dedicated to a higher standard of cleaning service, which is essential given the risks that exist today,” said ISSA Executive Director John Barrett. “Using CIMS as a management framework allows cleaning organisations to maintain quality, operate efficiently, and improve customer satisfaction.”
