The Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) is launching an Accreditation Scheme for the Manufacturers of Cleaning Chemicals.
The move means the CHSA has achieved its strategic ambition of Accrediting all members. The combination of the Association’s rigorous Code of Practice and its Accreditation Schemes guarantees its members trade ethically and work hard to maintain standards in the industry.
All existing Chemical Manufacturing members of the CHSA have passed the Scheme audit which has now resulted in them now being Accredited. The members of the Scheme as it launches are Bio-Productions, Chemex International, Diversey UK, Eastern Valley Chemicals, Easy Cleaning Solutions, Evans Vanodine International, GoJo Industries, Greyland, Holchem Laboratories, Kitchenmaster NI, Mirius, P&G Professional, Prochem Europe, PVA Hygiene, SC Johnson Professional and Selden Research.
All members of the Scheme signed a commitment to maintaining the highest standards and trade ethically. Including a determination on the part of Scheme members to support and facilitate the recycling of the plastic containers holding the cleaning chemicals, initially by including the recycling emblem on the packaging.
“Our focus is always on driving up standards in the industry,” explained Mike Stubbs, Vice President of the CHSA and Chairman of the Accreditation Schemes
The Chemical Manufacturers Accreditation Scheme joins the CHSA’s existing Accreditation Schemes for Distributors and for Manufacturers of Soft Tissue, Plastic Refuse Sacks and Industrial Cotton Mops. The Schemes mean buyers of cleaning and hygiene products can be assured that the trade is with an ethical company and that ‘what’s on the box is what’s in the box’. Through its Accreditation Schemes and Code of Practice, the CHSA maintains standards in the industry.
Mr Stubs continued stating; “Our existing Accreditation Scheme for Distributors and Manufacturing Standards Accreditation Schemes for Soft Tissue, Plastic Refuse Sacks and Industrial Cotton Mops, are already widely recognized as having done so. The increasing number of buyers of cleaning and hygiene products specifying our Schemes in their tenders provides evidence for this. ”
