What is GBAC STAR Accreditation?

GBAC logoThe Global Biorisk Advisory Council’s (GBAC, a specialty division of ISSA, the world’s leading trade association for the cleaning industry) STAR Accreditation is the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation for facilities. GBAC STAR means that a facility knows how to PREPARE, RESPOND, and RECOVER from infectious disease outbreaks and biohazard situations. It’s an important indicator of a facility’s thoroughness with cleaning, disinfection, and prevention. The word “STAR” was chosen for facility accreditation because the GBAC STAR program requires facilities to attain higher protocols to keep their spaces clean and safe for occupancy.
