Specifiers increasingly demanding Accreditation Scheme membership

Our Accreditation Schemes are having an impact, driving up standards in the industry.  Specifiers are increasingly demanding only those products that carry the marque of the relevant Accreditation Scheme.  

Most recently a major local authority referenced the "Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) Accreditation Scheme or equivalent, which ensures that customers are getting quality products."

Support the Schemes now and help us drive up standards across the industry.   

“Demand the best, demand CHSA Accredited Product”
