Program areas at NSF

The NSF water division certifies products that come into contact with drinking water; such products include plumbing components, water treatment chemicals, drinking water filters, and pool & spa equipment. NSF pioneered the development of the american national standards for all materials and products which treat (or come in contact with) drinking water, to help protect public health and the environment, and minimize adverse health effects. In 1990, the u.s. epa replaced its own drinking water product advisory program with these NSF standards. Today, most plumbing codes require certification to NSF standards forpipes and plumbing components in commercial and residential buildings.

The NSF health sciences division offers certification, training, consulting, research/development, and auditing services for the pharmaceutical and dietary supplement industries.

The NSF food safety division of the not-for-profit NSF International includes both food equipment and nonfood compounds certification. The food equipment program tests and certifies food equipment products for acceptance across the us, europe and other global markets. The nonfoodcompounds program offers risk management solutions for nonfood compounds and proprietary substances (i.e. Lubricants, cleaners and water treatment chemicals used if food and beverage processing).
