About GBAC

Our Purpose

The Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) helps organizations and businesses prepare for, respond to, and recover from biological threats, and biohazard situations and real-time crises. We offer education, training, certification, response management, and crisis consulting for situations where environments require a much higher level of cleaning, disinfection, and restoration.

GBAC is a division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association. Explore becoming a member of ISSA to access discounts to GBAC programs and services.

We will assess your preparedness and provide your staff with education and training for biorisk prevention and containment.


Our leaders will help you understand how to assess, contain, monitor, and eradicate disease to protect customers, visitors, employees, and the community at large.
