GBAC STAR Facility Renewal

Maintain your Commitment to Clean with the Industry’s Outbreak Prevention, Response & Recovery Accreditation

GBAC STAR Accredited Facility Seal

A GBAC® STAR facility initially earns accreditation for one year. GBAC STAR Facility Reaccreditation is an annual process that builds on the initial accreditation to ensure that accredited facilities continue to evolve, improve, and advance with the GBAC STAR program elements.

Facilities that renew thereby become increasingly effective at maintaining and delivering a cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention program that bolsters worker and occupant health and safety.
