HLAC History

HLAC was formed in 2005 in response to years of requests from textile professionals for an independent accrediting body that would create a program of certification acknowledging that a laundry organization meets the highest standards for processing textiles.

Professionals Working Independently with the Highest of Standards in the Best Interests of the Industry 

Today, no current program is as detailed as HLAC’s, or applies to all types of
laundry operations: on premise, co-op and commercial (HLAC is not in competition with, nor does it conflict with any other accrediting organization.)

HLAC’s standards, which have been professionally recognized, cover the complete textile processing cycle, from handling and transporting soiled
healthcare textiles, to in-plant processing and delivery back to the customer.

The standards also cover many basic considerations, such as facility layout,
personnel training and customer service. Special attention has been directed to laundry processes directly related to patient safety. 

Congratulations to the following laundries!

Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC) has always taken pleasure in offering accreditation and now, certification to laundries that not only provide quality healthcare textiles but have proven the process in which they take is accurate and credible.

Accreditation demonstrates a commitment to excellence, and certification adds that extra stamp of validation that guarantees the highest hygiene and safety standards.

No need for upfront payments, just straightforward savings for your laundry.
