CERCLEAN® is about quality management system, best practices and hygiene management

CINET developed a dedicated step by step low costs e-learning program , for both textile service (CERCLEAN® ITS) companies and Retail Textile Cleaning (dry cleaners) ones – CERCLEAN® RTC, in order to make quality management easier accessible for the Professional Textile Care industry. The step by step approach enables companies to follow the program at their own pace. CINET offers full support to enterprises in cooperation with national organizations, associations and representatives of international suppliers.

Two levels

The program includes two levels. The first level is focused on developing a quality management system based on ISO 9001:2015 and best practices when it comes to labour conditions and environment aspects. The second level is all about hygiene management and focused on the delivery of hygienically clean textiles according to established requirements. At the basis of this level stands the standard EN 14065 Risk Analysis Biocontamination Control (RABC) which is focused of analyzing the risk of biocontamination throughout the process and the monitoring an controlling of these risks.


What’s in it for you?

The Main Benefits of The CERCLEAN® International Certification are the following :

1. Implementing international best practices in PTC CERCLEAN® provides a complete step by step model for the laundry manager to implement best practices on  professional laundry and dry cleaning management in a laundry facility. The program is split up between a certification  scheme for Industrial Textile Services and Retail Textile Cleaning, so the program specializes based on the business model that is applicable. The handbook and easy-to-fi ll-out forms are based on optimized work fl ow and conditions, annual training of staff, setting yearly quality objectives, handling of hazardous chemicals, proper maintenance of machinery, good housekeeping, complaint management, productivity improvement plan and an energy savings plan.

2. Proven solution & continuous development

Over 50 years ago the industrial laundries started developing certification schemes in collaboration with health care organizations and governmental bodies based in Europe on ISO 9001 and later on RABC norms (EN 14065). With a global perspective CINET is committed to spread this knowledge on best practices and continuously work on improving the know-how in the program based on new innovations coming from the industry.

3. Most cost effective solution

The laundry manager can work anytime and anywhere as this is a digital, self-explaining program dedicated to PTC. Naturally users get online support of licensed  CERCLEAN® auditors. After applying for the program the laundry manager starts creating a handbook with standard procedures for their own specific laundry business and customers, supported by e-learning on quality & (optionally) hygiene management. This is much less time-consuming than buying a generic quality management program that is not dedicated to PTC. Besides that the program is updated annually based on the latest industry innovations.
