Interested in becoming accredited? HLAC accreditation, which is good for three years, means that a laundry meets HLAC Accreditation Standards. These standards have been documented, published, and professionally recognized.

HLAC Accreditation

HLAC Accreditation, which is good for three years, is an independent third-party program that acknowledges that a laundry organization meets the highest standards for processing healthcare textiles.

I Want to be Accredited. Now What?

Is Your Plant Ready?


Starting the Application Process

Fill out the Accreditation Agreement

This will create a free Accreditation Portal where you can view the status of your accreditation, upload documents, and more! 

Don’t forget to get Certified Hygienic Testing!


Completing the Inspection Agreement

Now that the agreement has been submitted, HLAC will review it and assign an inspector. From there the inspector will work with you to schedule the best time for a visit.  

Meet our Inspectors!


The Inspection

The inspector will work through the standards from start to finish looking over your plant. They will have questions throughout the process so be ready to answer questions and have all documents required in the standards ready.


After the Inspection

Once we receive the inspection report form from the inspector it will then be submitted to the Accreditation Subcommittees. Our Accreditation Committee is broken up into subcommittees in order to avoid any conflicts with competitors of any kind.  

Once the subcommittee has reviewed the inspection report form, they will determine if there are items that need to be remediated or if the plant has been approved for accreditation.  

If the plant has items to remediate HLAC will send the plant a remediation table with the failed standards. See Process Guide for more information on the remediation process.
