No. ISSA cherishes the diversity that is woven into the fabric of our industry. The Standard, therefore, is “non-prescriptive” and its goal is to act simply as a quality framework. As such, product, equipment, procedure, and system recommendations are explicitly not part of CIMS and each organization retains the flexibility to choose how it can best meet the Standard’s requirements. Cleaning organizations are free to select manufacturers, distributors, products, and educational tools that best assist them in complying with the Standard. © Copyright 2014 by ISSA, Northbrook, Illinois.
