The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has included the IICRC in a list of recommended certifications for organizations responsible for cleaning and decontaminating commercial passenger aircrafts that may have transported an Ebola infected traveler. Developed in response to last year’s outbreak, the guidance includes a list of best practices for cleaning aircrafts suspected of carrying infected persons. The full recommendation is available here.

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