What is the Global Biorisk Advisory Council Accreditation Program?
The GBAC STAR™ Accreditation Program on Cleaning, Disinfection and Infectious Disease Prevention for Facilities (GBAC STAR™ Program) establishes requirements to assist facilities in the cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention work practices to control risks associated with infectious agents such as SARS-CoV-2, Influenza, MRSA, and TB.
This GBAC STAR™ Program is performance based and sets out requirements for and places responsibility on facilities to demonstrate that appropriate cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention work practices, protocols, procedures, and systems have been established and implemented.
The GBAC STAR™ Program is designed such that any size facility or organization can use it and it is considered scalable.
