Cleaning Contractors

CAF offers a framework that allows cleaning companies to prequalify for building certification. This framework assesses a company’s compliance with CAF Standards, and ensures systems and processes are in place to facilitate CAF certification at a site level.

Certification of cleaning contractors is currently being developed and piloted. This page will be updated accordingly once the framework is finalised.

Property Owners / facility managers

CAF offers a certification framework that assures property owners, property managers and facility managers that cleaning services in their building are in compliance with CAF Standards.

This occurs both through a third-party audit of employee and business records of all relevant stakeholders on the site, and a worker engagement element conducted by CAF and the union representing cleaners United Voice.

Visit our Building Certification page to learn more including how to apply.

Tenants

CAF offers a certification framework that assures tenants that cleaners in their building are experienced, respected, safe and are receiving at minimum their legal pay and entitlements.

This occurs both through a third-party audit of employee and business records of all relevant stakeholders on the site, and a worker engagement element conducted by CAF and the union representing cleaners United Voice.

While certification is generally driven by the property owner/manager, tenants may also nominate their building for certification. To find out more, visit our Building Certification page.

Advisory Group

As a multi-stakeholder organisation, CAF relies on the input of a range of industry, government, civil society and academic expertise to build and refine the certification scheme.
If you are not a cleaning contractor, property owner, facility manager or tenant, but would still like to get involved in CAF, please contact us at info@cleaningaccountability.org.au to discuss further.
