The British Institute of Cleaning Science
The Institute is the largest independent professional and educational body within the cleaning industry.
Founded in 1961, its mission is 'the raising of status and standards of the cleaning industry, through education'. BICSc, as it is known, is an independent body with members in all areas of the cleaning industry, including Local Authorities, Contract Cleaners, Manufacturers, Suppliers, Trainers and by no means least, cleaning operatives themselves.
Our membership currently stands at almost 5,000 Individual and Corporate Members and our reach is global. The Institute's Membership Services, Training & Education and Finance & General Purposes Committees set the standards and develop the skills programmes necessary for the Institute's range of cleaning qualifications.

With more than 150 major clients and almost 18,000 contractor members, SAFEcontractor is the fastest growing health and safety assessment scheme in the UK.
As a leading health and safety pre-qualification assessment scheme, we are dedicated to promoting higher standards of competence and compliance through the provision of relevant industry specific and tailored health and safety assessments for all professions and sectors.
ISO 9001 Certification
ISO 9001 is the international Standard against which the Quality Management System of a business is evaluated, and is intended to demonstrate that a business can provide a consistent standard of quality in the goods and services it provides to its customers.
The Standard is worded to allow it to be adaptable and non-prescriptive, and therefore it can be applied to all companies. Most importantly, it is a common sense and practical method for confirming best practice and improving procedures.
Being able to achieve a significant competitive edge over your rivals is the major benefit that ISO 9001 Certification brings. Recent surveys reveal that almost 80% of businesses sought ISO 9001 Certification because of their need to increase or maintain their market share.
