With a mission to protect and improve human health globally, NSF is an independent accredited organization that tests and certifies a product to ensure that it meets the regulatory requirements necessary by the United States as well as testing requirements for many other countries. The NSF water certification is used as a mark of distinction for consumers to have knowledge that the product they are using is able to safely and effectively remove contaminants from drinking water.
WHAT IS NSF/ANSI 42: Drinking Water Treatment Units - Aesthetic Effects?
NSF/ANSI 42 establishes the minimum requirements for the certification of POU/POE filtration systems designed to reduce specific aesthetic or non-health-related contaminants (chlorine, taste, odor and particulates) that may be present in public or private drinking water.
The scope of NSF/ANSI 42 includes material safety, structural integrity and aesthetic, non-health-related contaminant reduction performance claims.
WHAT IS NSF/ANSI 53: Drinking Water Treatment Units - Health Effects NSF/ANSI 53?
establishes the minimum requirements for the certification of POU/POE filtration systems designed to reduce specific health-related contaminants, such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia, lead, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) and MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether), that may be present in public or private drinking water.
The scope of NSF/ANSI 53 includes material safety, structural integrity and health-related contaminant reduction performance claims.
