CDC recommends IICRC certified cleaners


WASHINGTON — The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has included the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) on its list of recommended certifications for organizations responsible for cleaning and decontaminating commercial aircrafts that potentially transported Ebola-infected passengers, according to a press release.

The CDC recommendations come in response to last year’s Ebola outbreak and subsequent spread as an effort to aid commercial aircraft companies in clean up and disinfection of these possibly infected aircrafts.

“IICRC prides itself on establishing industry-leading best practices for the cleaning, restoration and remediation of contaminated property,” IICRC Chairman Tony Wheelwright said in the release. “Having our certification recognized by the CDC further validates the integrity of our certification programs for creating clean and safe environments.”

The IICRC reports that the CDC’s guidance list “The guidance exceeds guidelines established by Occupational Health & Safety Administration (OSHA) and includes recommendations for certification through two other organizations, the National Institute of Decontamination Specialists (NIDS) and American Bio Recovery Association (ABRA), or complete training as outlined in the OSHA Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard (HAZWOPER).”
