REACH for the cleaning supply chain

REACH is a business-critical issue for companies in the cleaning and hygiene sector.  To help you adapt we are hosting a conference, in partnership with the BACS, covering:

  • REACH, COSHH and CLP: how they fit together
  • Scope, responsiblities and deadlines: who has to do what and when
  • Safety data sheets: what triggers changes and how frequently can we expect them? 
  • Critical information not in the safety data sheet: what are the options to communicate it?
  • The future of managing cleaning chemicals in the supply chain

The conference is taking place on 21 June at the Lea Marston Hotel, just off Junction 9 of the M42.  

Email the Secretariat now to reserve your place.  

Aiming high - driving up standards

Check out pages 54 and 55 of the February issue of Tomorrow's Cleaning!

In a double page spread Stephen Harrison and Mike Stubbs explain our ambitious plans for the future and the ways in which we're driving up standards in the sector.  

First we've made sure the marques of the CHSA and its Manufacturing Standards Accreditation Schemes are stamps of quality and recognised as such.  

Second, we're calling on buyers of cleaning and hygiene products to demand membership in their tenders.  Some are already doing so and we're seeing membership applications increase as a result.  We've created a virtuous circle!

A special price, just for you!

Our Gala Ball, taking place on 20 May at Heythrop Park Resort, OX7 5UE, is a sell out!

With a packed evening of entertainment the Ball will be a night to remember.  

We have negotiated a special Saturday night deal of £105, with upgrades at £50.   

We're also seeking raffle prizes.  If you have something that will help us raise as much as possible for the Chairman's charity, The Helping Treat Cancer Together Committe, email our Secretary, Linda Belcher.  

Dan Walker to host our Golf Day!
