CHSA celebrates 20th anniversary
28 March 2017
The Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its Manufacturing Standards Accreditation Scheme for Soft Tissue.
For 20 years the Association has been active in driving up standards, making sure that what’s in the box is on the box. Today the marque of the Soft Tissue, Plastic Refuse Sack and Industrial Cotton Mop Accreditation Schemes means buyers can be certain they get what they pay for.
“The Schemes have been incredibly effective at driving up standards in the industry,” Mike Stubbs, chairman of the CHSA’s Accreditation Schemes, said. “Although the Schemes improved standards significantly, four years ago the Scheme Management Panels decided to further enhance them. This has resulted in even greater compliance. The Soft Tissue manufacturers are now achieving near 100% compliance, with members of the Plastic Refuse Sack and Industrial Cotton Mop Schemes achieving similar conformance. As a result, we are now being called in by procurers to check the product before they buy.
“Now, more than ever, the only way for buyers to be certain what's on the box is in the box is to buy from an Accreditation Scheme member.”
Following the success of the Soft Tissue Accreditation Scheme the CHSA went on to launch Manufacturing Standards Accreditation Schemes for Plastic Refuse Sacks and Industrial Cotton Mops and this year it has launched an Accreditation Scheme for Distributors.
