CIMS is an organizational Standard and certification program that applies to management, operations, performance systems, and processes. The Standard is divided into six areas of management best practices: Quality systems; Service delivery; Human resources; Health, safety, and environmental stewardship; Management commitment; and Green Building (GB). Certification demonstrates that a cleaning organization is managed in accordance with industry best-practices.
The CIMS-GB component is designed to help cleaning organizations assist their customers in securing points under the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED-EBOM) Green Building Rating System while greening their operations overall.
Conformity with Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS)'s standard is verified by an independent organization (third party).
