CHSA accreditation scheme for distributors launched

13 January 2017

A new accreditation scheme for distributors was launched by the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) on 1 January.

This is the fourth example of its kind from the CHSA and joins three other standards for manufacturing created by the association.

Following its launch, the CHSA is inviting all relevant members to apply to join the Accreditation Scheme for Distributors.

CHSA vice president and Accreditation Panel Scheme chair Mike Stubbs said: "Our focus is always on driving up standards in the industry; our existing Manufacturing Standards Accreditation Schemes [are] widely recognised as already having done so.

"The increasing number of buyers of cleaning and hygiene products specifying our schemes in their tenders provides evidence for this," he said.

He described the scheme as the "natural next step" to allow distributor members to supply products that will meet both the standards of the scheme and the CHSA Code of Practice.

Those applying for the scheme will be required to complete the CHSA auditing process, with further audits conducted to ensure standards are sustained.

Distributors joining the scheme will also be required to sign a declaration that will only offer CHSA accredited products or those that meet its requirements.
