GBAC-STAR-Destination-RGB-Full-Color.pngGBAC STAR™ Destination Program Launches for DMOs and Municipalities

In early October, the Global Biorisk Advisory Council, (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, added the GBAC STAR™ Destination program to its accreditation offerings. This new designation enables organizations like municipalities, tourism bureaus, and DMOs to demonstrate their destination’s dedication to building healthier, safer, and more confident communities through widespread adoption of GBAC STAR accreditations.

GBAC STAR™ Destination encourages greater participation in GBAC STAR™ Facility Accreditation, designed for facilities of all types and sizes, and GBAC STAR™ Service Accreditation, which is reserved for building service contractors responsible for cleaning and maintaining these facilities. The Destination designation for municipalities, tourism bureaus, and DMOs enables them to play a key role in identifying businesses, public facilities, and other organizations that can pursue their respective accreditation. In turn, these facilities and cleaning service providers create and uphold a system of cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention that benefits their employees, customers, and community members.

GBAC STAR™ Destination offers pricing options for destinations with populations less than and greater than 500,000. Compliance with the program’s requirements enables organizations to use the official GBAC STAR™ seal to promote commitment to public health and safety. Accreditation also offers numerous other benefits, like access to GBAC Scientific Advisory Board resources and the GBAC Online Fundamentals Course, complimentary ISSA Associate Membership and more.
