ISSA and Middle East Consultancy Association part ways
International cleaning association to offer education and certification directly in Middle East
The International Sanitary Supply Association (ISSA), the worldwide cleaning industry association has ended its affiliation with the Middle East Consultancy Association (MECA).
The international association will no longer utilise MECA as an education and training partner in the Middle East.
In a statement ISSA said it will work directly in the region to provide its global Cleaning Management Institute (CMI) workshops and training as well as ISSA’s international Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) certification.
ISSA has more than 9,000 members—including distributors, manufacturers, manufacturer representatives, building service contractors, in-house service providers, residential cleaners, and associated service members.
MECA was launched in Dubai last May, and the agency's immediate plans were to focus on the education, health, and aviation markets.
