The CSSA code of practice must be adhered to by all its members. The code gives clients the comfort of knowing that their contractor is both ethical and provides great value for money.
From the contractors perspective the CSSA provides its members with industry updates and discussion points. This includes a regular issue of the CSSA industry Bulletin.
The organisation has Government forum representation on two key forums: The Border Agency Contractors Forum and the HSE Cleaning Industry Forum.
The CSSA will act as an intermediary and provide dispute resolution assistance to its members and in 2017 members will be given access to a document library containing useful industry related documents.
The new CSSA Board contains some of the most influential thought leaders in the UK cleaning industry and is headed the inimitable Doug Cook as Chairman. Other members include Darren Marston (currently Junior Warden of the Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners), Ashley Hoadley, Sean Taylor and Michael Rutherford.

The relaunch of the CSSA is excellent news and will benefit the cleaning and services industry immensely, if you are connected to the Cleaning Industry and not already a member I would strongly recommend you consider it.
