ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, and the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) have agreed to merge. Effective immediately, GBAC will be known officially as “GBAC, a Division of ISSA.”
GBAC is a recognized leader in training, education, and certification in Forensic Restoration biorisk management, decontamination, and infection control disciplines. As a division of ISSA, GBAC will not only expand its formal training and certification offerings but will continue to serve as a trusted resource to government, commercial, and private entities to help them prepare for, respond to, and recover from public health outbreaks and crisis situations.
“ISSA and GBAC have come together to make the world a safer, healthier, and better place. The merger clearly complements ISSA’s mission to change the way the world views cleaning and advance the professionalism of the cleaning industry,” said ISSA executive director, John Barrett in the press release.
“We are incredibly excited about the positive impact GBAC will have on our members and our industry overall.”
