Our manufacturing members include multinationals with a global footprint and major UK-based independent manufacturers. Our distributor members span national networks to privately owned independent businesses.
Our priority is to support our members to ensure they prosper and advance through maintaining and enhancing standards on quality, ethics and sustainability.
Committed to standards
To join the Association, every CHSA member has successfully passed our tough auditing process to secure its status as either an Accredited Manufacturer or an Accredited Distributor. Combined with our rigorous Code of Practice, the Schemes guarantee members trade ethically and sustainability; provide quality, fit for purpose products; and make sure what’s on the box is what’s in the box.
Responsible leader of the cleaning & hygiene industry
Embodied by our Code of Practice, we lead the industry in advocating ethical and environmentally sustainable business practices.
We have a long track record of giving something back:
- We award undergraduate bursaries every year to the children of members’ employees, who are beginning their university careers.
- Thanks to the generosity of members, we donate thousands of pounds every year to charity.
Active, connected supported members
We offer members excellent networking opportunities. These include our sell-out Gala Ball and Annual Charity Golf Day.
We also have a track record of providing a platform for members at an industry level. We represent their interests at the British Cleaning Council and work closely with associations including the CSSA and BICSc. We have been leading an initiative through the British Cleaning Council to create an All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for the wide ranging cleaning sector.
Inform and educate
We regularly update members on timely and relevant topics. In the context of extraordinary product claims, this included a webinar on the use of cleaning and hygiene chemicals in the coronavirus pandemic.
Our monthly eNewsletter keeps members informed of our activities and industry initiatives. It also provides a platform for members to share information.
