YPO, the UK’s largest public sector buying and procurement organization, has joined the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association’s (CHSA) Accreditation Scheme for Distributors.
YPO’s decision to join signifies the Scheme’s importance to buyers of cleaning and hygiene products. Only by buying from Accredited members can purchasers and end users of these products be certain ‘what’s on the box is what’s in the box’.
With over 40 years’ experience and 100% publicly owned, YPO is committed to delivering best value for its customers. Explaining why the organisation joined the CHSA’s Accreditation Scheme for Distributors, Kelly Snee, Category Buyer – Cleaning at YPO said: “We want our customers to be confident that the cleaning products we supply are of the highest standard.
“As a public sector procurement organisation, we continuously strive to ensure through contracting that we are capturing the best quality for the best price. Being an Accredited Distributor means we can continue to pursue the best standard of products available in the industry and assures our customers of this, making sure our valued customers are getting what they pay for.”
Membership of the Accreditation Scheme for Distributors is a clear stamp of approval, indicating the member’s commitment to quality and transparency. To join, distributors must sign a declaration that they will only stock and offer for sale CHSA Accredited products or products that conform to the same Standards as required by the relevant CHSA Manufacturing Standards Accreditation Scheme.
Underpinned by an auditing process conducted by an independent inspector, the Accreditation Schemes guarantee ‘what’s on the box is what’s in the box’. Specifying Scheme membership in tenders is the only way buyers of cleaning and hygiene products get what they pay for.
Mike Stubbs, Chairman of the Accreditation Scheme Panel, said: “We are delighted to welcome YPO into the Accreditation Scheme for Distributors after its successful completion of the auditing process.
“YPO’s decision to join proves the growing importance of our Accreditation Schemes to buyers and end users of cleaning and hygiene products. Recognising it’s the only way to be certain they get what they pay for, the value they place on the Schemes is growing. Our Standards, your guarantee.”
