Members of the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association’s (CHSA) Manufacturing and Distributor Accreditation Schemes achieved high levels of conformance to the demanding standards of the schemes, according to the analysis of the 2019 audit results.
The schemes’ independent inspector conducted more than 140 audits, inspecting well over 2000 individual products in the process. Conformance across all four schemes was near perfect.
During 2019 all distributor members either applied to join and successfully passed the Accreditation Scheme inspection or left the association and are no longer able to use the CHSA logo.
“Our Accreditation Schemes make sure ‘what’s on the box is what’s in the box’ is the industry norm for buyers of cleaning and hygiene products,” said Mike Stubbs, chairman of the Accreditation Schemes. “It’s our rigorous process of independent inspection that means we can maintain this position and offer our guarantee to contract cleaners and facilities managers. With standards consistently high, our goal is now to persuade contract cleaners and facilities managers to specify scheme membership in their tenders. It’s the only way they can be certain they get both a product that’s fit for purpose and exactly what they pay for.”
