It provides the latest guidelines and good-practice cleaning techniques for commercial hot- and cold-water systems in buildings.

In particular, the guidance aims to clarify the roles and responsibilities of the parties, improve the exchange of information between them and provide consistency between service offerings of pre-commissioning cleaning contractors.
