The BICSc is the largest independent, professional and educational body within the cleaning industry, with over 10,000 individual and corporate members in the UK and internationally.

Kingdom’s site-managed commercial cleaning and maintenance service is committed to using the best people who are trained not just in cleaning techniques and technology, but also in Health and Safety, and the importance of environmental issues. They remain steadfast in their “commitment to quality” (C2Q) by embracing five key components: Safety, Health, Environment, Service and Outcomes.

It then went on to establish educational standards, and over the years the services and training provided by the Institute have evolved to reflect changes within the industry. BICSc have maintained an active role in setting standards and procedures for cleaning, training and education and is the leading provider in educational accredited standards and qualifications within the cleaning industry.
