QualSTAR COVID Safety Compliance scheme to boost guest confidence

QualSTAR COVID Safety Compliance scheme has been formulated by industry experts with years of extensive experience behind them, and founded under the patronage of VK Duggal, former Governor of Manipur and Mizoram; former Director General – Tourism, Government of India; and former Union Home Secretary. He says, “In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the imminent need to consider a national certification system based on the broad guidelines for safety and hygiene formulated by the government and international organisations has come to the forefront. Today, to win the confidence of a guest, safety and hygiene are a priority. Getting the right message across to them through authentic certification is the means to do it. The QualSTAR COVID Safety Compliance scheme is meant to do just that.”

Rajesh Maheshwari, CEO, NABCB, says, “NABCB is the national accreditation body in India for accreditation of certification and inspection bodies, and is established by the government as one of the constituent Boards under the Quality Council of India. NABCB accreditation programmes are internationally recognised by being signatory to the international multilateral mutual recognition agreements / arrangement (MLAs / MRAs). The accredited certificate or report issued by a certification body or inspection body under NABCB accreditation will have international acceptance, recognition, as the competence of the accredited body has been independently assessed as per the standards/regulations/schemes specified in the scope of accreditation granted by NABCB. Accreditation provides an assurance to the clients or the users, on the accredited conformity assessment (certification / inspection) results for the products and/or services they use.”
