Accreditation for CHSA members by 2020

21 February 2019

All distributor members of the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) will be approved as Accredited Distributors by 31 December 2020.

Confirmed earlier this week, the CHSA states that this is part of its Accreditation Scheme for Distributors to ensure that industry standards are maintained.

Distributors joining the scheme are expected to sign a declaration that they will only sell products accredited by the association or conform to its Manufacturing Standards Accreditation scheme or its code of practice.

These must be supplied by a CHSA-accredited manufacturer or conform to the scheme's stipulated standards.

The association said its members recorded a high level of compliance last year, with 97.5% of products sourced from accredited manufacturers.

Established at the start of 2017, the CHSA is inviting all its distributor members to join the Accredited Distributor Scheme.

It is currently used by more than half of the membership, including all national networks and major distributors, who have successfully completed the auditing process and use the Accreditation Scheme's marque on products and as part of their promotions.

CHSA chair Stephen Harrison said the organisation "stands up for standards" and the Accreditation Scheme ensures "you get what you pay for".

"To make sure this guarantee is true for all our distributor members, our governing council voted unanimously to aim to ensure every distributor member has passed the auditing process and joined our Accreditation Scheme for Distributors by the end of 2020.

"From 1 January 2021, those who do not do so will no longer be members of the CHSA," he said.
