The CHSA represents all the major manufacturers and distributors, from global multinationals and national networks to privately owned independent businesses.

The Association gives these businesses a powerful collective voice and keeps them informed and connected through highlight events, seminars and the newsletter.

The CHSA has driven up standards, making it possible for buyers of cleaning products to be sure when they buy Accredited products that what’s on the box is in the box. All members adhere to the code of practice and the Manufacturing Standards Accreditation Schemes for Soft Tissue products, Plastic Refuse Sacks and Industrial Cotton Mops make sure customers get what they pay for.

Application to one of the Accreditation Schemes does not guarantee membership.

Applicants are only admitted if they pass the initial audit of all their products, labels and quality control procedures conducted by the Scheme’s Independent Inspector.  Each new member is then audited four times in the first year of membership and at least twice annually thereafter.  Should they fail to meet the Standard they would lose their Accreditation membership.

We are extremelyproud to stock paper products, refuse sacks and cotton mops which have been independently tested and CHSA accredited.
