Reassure guests and employees in the hospitality industry with our hygiene and Infection-protection management certification
The COVID 19 pandemic poses special challenges for the hospitality industry. As they reopen, hotels and restaurants are subject to demanding and complex regulations. In order to credibly document and communicate their compliance to the public, we have developed a certification program to the industry.
As a neutral third party, we review compliance with the technical, organizational and personnel requirements companies must implement to comply with current hygiene and infection prevention regulations. Following a successful review, you receive the certificate "Hygiene and Infection-protection management in the hospitality industry", which proves that you are taking all the precautions necessary to protect the health of your guests and employees.
Our experts are at your side with extensive know-how and a pragmatic approach. We understand the challenges you face as your company reopens and support you with our official TÜV certificate.
