Over 60 companies achieve CIMS certification

ISSA has announced that more than 60 companies have achieved ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) certification in 2021. Designed to help organisations improve the quality and efficiency of their business and cleaning operations, CIMS outlines the primary characteristics of a successful cleaning organisation.

“We’re excited to welcome both new and renewing companies to our growing list of CIMS-certified organisations,” said ISSA executive director, John Barrett. “It has never been more important for businesses to showcase their commitment to facility cleanliness, and these firms that have achieved CIMS certification understand that to the fullest.”

Designed to assist cleaning organisations of all sizes, CIMS applies five core elements of management best practices: quality systems; service delivery; human resources; health, safety and environmental stewardship; and management commitment. It requires a cleaning company or in-house cleaning department to meet 100% of the mandatory elements and 60% of the recommended elements, per section.
