CHSA accreditation

The CHSA (Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association) represents all the major manufacturers and distributors supplying cleaning and hygiene products in the UK.

Monitored by independent inspectors who visit participating manufacturers to ensure compliance, CHSA accredited products enhance the standing of both the market and those companies operating in it by ensuring the end users receive real value for money.

As a founder member of the CHSA, Northwood Hygiene Products, owners of the Essentials brand, adhere to a strict code of practice for accurate product descriptions and labelling, meaning that whatever is stated on the label is what is in the box. CHSA Soft Tissue Standards certificate guarantees our customers:

  • Consistency of supply: customers receive what they order
