News Sponsored by Accredited Members highlighted in


CHSA advert The Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association’s (CHSA) new advert focuses on its work to maintain industry standards, while spotlighting Accreditation members.


Proving the strength and depth in the membership, the names of members of the Accreditation Schemes for Distributors and Manufacturers of Soft Tissue, Plastic Refuse Sacks and industrial Cotton Mop form the scheme’s logo.


The CHSA’s Accreditation Schemes ensure standards in the industry are maintained, guaranteeing ‘what’s on the box is what’s in the box’. ‘Our Standards: Your Guarantee’.


Gaining accreditation is challenging: applicants must successfully pass an inspection carried out by the scheme’s Independent Auditor. He assesses the relevant products, confirming whether or not they conform to the relevant Standards. In the case of distributors, they must either supply CHSA Accredited product or product proven to meet the same stipulated standards that apply to product from the relevant Manufacturing Scheme Standard.


As of 1 January 2020, all distributor members of the CHSA are now Accredited Distributors. Any that did not apply to join and successfully pass the auditing process in 2019 are no longer members of the CHSA and cannot use the CHSA logo.


All members of the CHSA must also conform to the Association’s rigorous Code of Practice, which demands an ethical and responsible approach to business, and more importantly, that product labelling provides full and accurate dimensions and quantities.


CHSA Chairman, Lorcan Mekitarian, said: “The CHSA stands up for standards. Our Accreditation Schemes provide the guarantee buyers of cleaning and hygiene product need – you get what you pay for. Naming every Scheme member in the advert is the perfect way to highlight the members and spotlight their contribution to maintaining standards.”

China to introduce plastic bag ban


A major plan to reduce single-use plastics across China has been unveiled, in the latest attempt to curb usage across the country.


By the end of 2020, non-degradable plastic bags will be banned across many major cities, with the ban extending to all cities and towns by 2022. 2020 will also see a ban on using single-use straws in the restaurant industry.


Further policy changes being introduced over the next five years include the outright banning of plastic bags less than 0.025mm thick, hotels must stop offering free single-use plastic items by 2025, and the restaurant industry must reduce single-use plastic item use by 30%.


China’s 1.4 billion citizens generate an incredible amount of waste, with 215m tonnes of urban household waste collected in the country in 2017 alone. China’s largest rubbish dump, the 170-acre Jiangcungou landfill in Shaanxi Province, received so much more waste per day than it


could accommodate, that in 2019 it was completely filled up and closed 25 years ahead of schedule.


China had previously banned retailers from handing out free plastic bags in 2008, while the country also banned the importing of foreign plastic waste.
