Hotel Nikko Narita has secured a certification under SGS Japan’s Cleaning and Disinfection Monitoring and Verification Process.

With more than 2,600 offices and laboratories worldwide, SGS Japan is an independent inspection, verification, testing and certification company that provides the global benchmark for quality and integrity.

Hotel Nikko Narita is claimed to be the first hotel in Japan to be certified under its verification service and aims to ensure visitors’ safety.

SGS developed the verification process and launched across the world after the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The certification indicates that Hotel Nikko Narita has implemented infection prevention measures and complies with the latest guidelines recognised by the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Hotel Nikko Narita general manager Makoto Yoshitaka said: “In 2020, the world clearly changed due to the spread of Covid-19. Concerns about the further spread of the disease cannot be dispelled, and the situation continues to be unpredictable.

“However, against this background we continue to commit to providing a tranquil and comfortable stay in line with our hotel vision “Total comfort with you in mind”.

“As a hotel located adjacent to Narita International Airport, the gateway to Japan, we believe our top priority is to provide safe and secure accommodation for our guests. We have therefore had the hotel verified by SGS Japan as meeting their strict international standards.”

During the verification process, a gap analysis was conducted based on more than 70 evaluation categories within SGS’s strict international standards.
