Updates from the Leading Association for the Cleaning Industry Worldwide
ISSA Names CIMS Charter Groups
ISSA has announced both the first group to achieve accreditation as ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) assessors and the first to achieve accreditation as CIMS experts.
CIMS assessors are certified to conduct comprehensive assessments of cleaning organizations that have applied for certification under CIMS — the new standard developed through industry consensus to determine the universally accepted principles of a well-managed and customer-centered cleaning organization. The assessors’ first task will be to evaluate the 24 organizations that are currently participating in the CIMS Case Study certification program. Organizations currently applying for certification will undergo assessments in the fall, when the program is officially launched.
The CIMS expert designation allows individuals to provide training or consulting to organizations interested in complying with the Standard or preparing to certify to it. The first Certification Expert Workshop was held May 9. Due to strong interest, another workshop is scheduled for June 25 in Rosemont, IL.
