Phil Ackland Exhaust Cleaners Certification Protocol
TKS has successfully completed the Phil Ackland's Exhaust Cleaners Certification Protocol. This protocol provides guidelines for commercial kitchen exhaust cleaners (herein referred to as exhaust cleaners) and the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) to establish a consistent and recordable set of Competencies for commercial kitchen exhaust cleaners. The protocol is also designed to help exhaust cleaning companies enhance their professionalism with all stakeholders.
In 1998, to improve commercial kitchen fire safety, NFPA 96 approved the proposal that restaurant exhaust systems be inspected and cleaned:
NFPA 96 11.6.1 Upon inspection, if found to be contaminated with deposits from grease-laden vapors, the contaminated portions of the exhaust system shall be cleaned by a properly trained, qualified, and certified company or person(s) acceptable to the authority having jurisdiction.
