Prepared to reopen: GBAC® STAR Facility Accreditation Program launched
The Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, introduced its GBAC® STAR facility accreditation program on cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention. It is the industry’s only outbreak prevention, response, and recovery accreditation. GBAC STAR establishes requirements to assist facilities with work practices, protocols, procedures, and systems to control risks associated with infectious agents, such as SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19. Accreditation criteria and facility applications are now available at www.gbac.org.
