Knowledge is the added asset of the HLAC-accredited laundry where education is routine and everyone wins as a result – the industry, the laundry organization, the personnel who work there, the healthcare customer and ultimately the healthcare patient.


In all of HLAC’s standards, knowledge is pervasive and one will find among these standards only the industry’s best and most current practices; continuous learning and training of laundry personnel are the order of the day.

And it doesn’t end there as the HLAC Continuing Education Series offers
ongoing instructional information for adding value.

Knowledge is the added asset of the HLAC-accredited laundry – it’s pervasive in HLAC’s standards of industry’s best practices, in the continuous training of personnel and HLAC’s ongoing educational series of instructional information.

Important Notice About the HLAC Accreditation Program


An HLAC inspector’s assessment of a provider’s facility and processes for the production of hygienically clean reusable healthcare textiles is based on the integrated requirements, best practices, and guidance from diverse entities adopted by reference in the 2016 HLAC Accreditation Standards. HLAC inspectors are not certified as state or federal surveyors nor should compliance with HLAC Standards be interpreted as state or federal certified compliance with all state or federal regulations.  Neither are HLAC inspectors qualified to certify compliance with local regulations or the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). Laundries are typically inspected only once every three years but may be inspected more frequently.  The laundry undertakes to maintain the accreditation standards throughout the three years but HLAC makes no warranties to this effect.  HLAC DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY FOR THE ACTIONS OR OMISSIONS OF PARTICIPATING LAUNDRIES.
