The T-certificate is issued based on the members' declaration in combination with audits at the laundries. Approximately 70 points are evaluated (depending on the type of business) and the facilities must be approved to obtain their certificate.
The criteria for authorization are developed in collaboration between Ensucon and the Swedish Laundry Association. They are reviewed regularly and, if necessary, adjusted. The goal is to constantly raise and develop the level according to the industry's best practice and, of course, according to customers' requirements and expectations.
The person responsible for each laundry reports each year how the businesses work on the issues. In addition, follow-up sampling is carried out among plants by an independent consultant. Bacterial tests are performed on washed goods during sampling checks. The samples are analyzed in accredited laboratories and the results are examined based on the established maximum level. If everything is in order, a certificate will be issued for the coming year.
