What Is an NSF Certification?
Millions of people take the safety of their food, water, and consumer products seriously. Because of the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) people can relax and not worry so much about the products they buy. NSF certification is the key to making sure that the products you use meet strict standards for public health protection.
Choosing one of our products that are certified by NSF lets you know we have complied with strict standards and procedures imposed by NSF. From extensive product testing to material analyses, every aspect of our product’s development is thoroughly evaluated before it can earn their certification.
This certification is not a one-time earned process but involves regular on-site inspections of manufacturing facilities and regular re-testing of products to ensure that they continue to meet the same high standards required to maintain certification over time. If for any reason a product fails to meet one or more certification criteria, NSF will take enforcement actions to protect customers, including product recall, public notification, or de-certification.
Our products that earn NSF certification are said to be “NSF certified” or “NSF listed” and display the applicable NSF certification mark.
Manufacturers, regulators, and consumers look to NSF for the development of public health standards and certification programs that help protect the world’s food, water, consumer products and environment.
NSF is accredited by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (osha.gov), the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) (scc.ca), the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) (ansi.org) and the International Accreditation Service (iasonline.org). NSF laboratories worldwide are ISO/IEC 17025 accredited for testing and calibration and the Ann Arbor location is an OSHA Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory.
