DJB first to become a CHSA ‘accredited distributor’

DJB Cleaning Supplies is the first distributor of cleaning and hygiene products in the country to secure accreditation from the Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA). Businesses buying cleaning and hygiene products, now more than ever, can be certain that ‘what’s on the box is in the box’ with DJB Cleaning Supplies.

Representing all the major manufacturers and distributors of cleaning and hygiene products, the CHSA operates four accreditation schemes, three for manufacturers (soft tissue, plastic refuse sacks and industrial cotton mops) and one for distributors, which was launched in January 2017.

“Delivering great service to our customers sits at the heart of our business,” said Dave and Lin Bruce, directors of DJB Cleaning Supplies. “We backed the establishment of the CHSA Accredited Distributor Scheme since its inception and are delighted to be the first to secure accreditation in the UK. It’s an independent stamp of approval, giving our customers confidence that we mean it when we say we’re committed to standards.”

Gaining admittance to the CHSA’s Accreditation Scheme for Distributors is challenging. DJB Cleaning Supplies successfully completed an auditing process conducted by the CHSA’s independent inspector, Martin Yates. He checked product in the warehouse, making sure ‘what was on the box is in the box’. On joining, DJB Cleaning Supplies also signed a declaration that it will only stock and offer for sale CHSA Accredited products or products that conform to the same Standards as required by the relevant CHSA Manufacturing Standards Accreditation Scheme.

To maintain its accredited status, DJB Cleaning Supplies will be monitored periodically with a minimum of two audits each year, giving buyers of their products the certainty standards are sustained.
