ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, has announced that it and the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) have agreed to merge. Effective immediately, GBAC will be known officially as ‘GBAC, a division of ISSA’.
GBAC is a recognised leader in training, education and certification in ‘forensic restoration’ biorisk management, decontamination and infection-control disciplines. The merger of GBAC into ISSA addresses a market need for advanced knowledge and application of science-based cleaning, disinfection and infection-control practices worldwide.
"ISSA and GBAC have come together to make the world a safer, healthier and better place,” said ISSA executive director, John Barrett. “The merger clearly complements ISSA's mission to change the way the world views cleaning and advance the professionalism of the cleaning industry. We are incredibly excited about the positive impact GBAC will have on our members and our industry overall."
