In an effort to help facilities around the world make it easier to vet the appropriate cleaning, disinfection, and infection prevention essentials, the Global Biorisk Advisory Council, (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, launched GBAC STAR Registered Technology and Registered Programs. The offering allows manufacturers and other companies to have their cleaning, infectious disease prevention, or similar type technology or program designated as GBAC STAR Registered. This provides added assurance for facility managers and service providers who are dedicated to cleaning for health.

“With so many options on the market, it can be overwhelming for decision makers to select the best equipment, chemicals, or programs,” says GBAC Executive Director Patricia Olinger. “With GBAC STAR Registered, it’s clear which solutions and programs have been vetted by experts and meet a higher level of cleanliness and safety. This allows managers to better equip and train professionals so they can more easily and effectively uphold public health.”

Equipment, products, or programs that become GBAC STAR Registered earn a stamp of approval that confirms safety and builds trust, similar to the GBAC STAR Facility Accreditation seal seen throughout accredited facilities. To be eligible, a GBAC STAR Registered application must include a list of claims and problem statement the offering is addressing, evidence that the offering will make an effective contribution in preventing the spread of COVID-19 or any other diseases, and demonstrate advantage over existing offerings in terms of efficacy, cost, health, and safety.
