Peter Oliver, General Manager UK, Ireland and France, Kimberly-Clark Professional said: “We set up the Awards to recognise excellence and inspire the raising of standards which we can see demonstrated through high levels of first-rate entries from across the cleaning industry.”

The 57 finalists will now go through to the next stage of judging which for most categories includes a site visit by a BICSc judge. The site visits will take place during November and December and the judging panel are looking for innovation, staff training, and client relationships as the main criteria to be assessed.

The judges work to the BICSc Best Value document before they carry out their site visits. In addition, there will be a head judge and a compliance officer.

Stan Atkins, Chief Executive Officer, British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) said: “The standard of entries was exceptionally high with evidence of clear innovations and achievements across the industry. The judges look forward to meeting the finalists at the site visits, and it is important to stress that they will be judging standards achieved and not just whether the entry specifications are followed.”

BICSc is overseeing all stages of the judging. An independent judge has been appointed for the BICSc Industry Training Award, in the interests of fairness.
