Press Room > 2020

Thailand’s tourism and health authorities have teamed up to launch the Amazing Thailand Safety and Health Administration (SHA) project which is a unique certification scheme aimed at preparing the Thai tourism industry for the recovery period.

According to Yuthasa Supasorn, the governor of Tourism Authority of Thailand, all establishments who applied for the standard will undergo strict inspection and assigned the SHA logo, as a mark of quality certification of the service standards of that establishment.

The logo will be issued by TAT with a validity period of two years. All the names of the accredited establishments are entered into a database. If any violations are reported, the logo will be revoked.

Ten types of business can request the SHA standard restaurants, food outlets, hotels, accommodation, convention centres, recreation and tourist attractions, tourist transport vehicle, travel agents including tour operators, health and beauty parlours, department stores, shopping centres, sports stadiums, theatres, cinemas and souvenir shops.

Names of the SHA certified establishments are available at and through the communication channels of TAT’s domestic and overseas offices.
