'Near perfect' compliance with CHSA Accreditation Schemes
28 February 2017
After conducting analysis of its Accreditation Schemes for Soft Tissue, Plastic Sacks and Cotton Mops in 2016, the CHSA has announced that a 'near perfect' compliancy figure was achieved.
CHSA independent inspector Martin Yates made at least two visits to every member, it stated, with the majority achieving 100% label compliance during his second visit.
Chairman of the Accreditation Schemes Mike Stubbs is now calling on buyers of soft tissue products, refuse sacks and cotton mops to specify scheme membership in tenders.
"Working closely with our scheme members we have continued to increase the rigour of the CHSA Accreditation Schemes," he said.
"We're delighted to see the inspections show that now, more than ever, purchasers of cleaning and hygiene products can be certain they get what they pay for from scheme members.
"Our advice is that they join a growing band of organisations specifying Accreditation Scheme membership in their tenders," said Mr Stubbs.
Within the Mops Accreditation Scheme, 98.6% compliance was achieved on Mr Yates' first visit, with each member achieving 100% on the second call.
This means that the logo reflects what it says on the label and every product is traceable to the manufacturer and batch.
Another 100% rating was also achieved by the members of the Plastic Sack Accreditation Scheme on Mr Yates' second visit, compared to a rate of 78% in 2015.
Members of the Soft Tissue Accreditation Scheme achieved a compliancy rating of 98% overall.
Following the success of its Accreditation Schemes for manufacturers, the CHSA launched its Accredited Distributor Scheme in January this year, with the first members due to be announced in the near future.
