If you manufacture, sell or distribute water treatment chemicals in North America, your products are required to comply with NSF/ANSI/CAN 60: Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals – Health Effects by most governmental agencies that regulate drinking water supplies. Developed by a team of scientists, industry experts and key industry stakeholders, NSF/ANSI/CAN 60 sets health effects criteria for many water treatment chemicals including:
- Corrosion and scale inhibitors
- Coagulants and flocculants
- Disinfection and oxidation chemicals
- pH adjustment, softening, precipitation and sequestering chemicals
- Well drilling aids
- All other specialty chemicals used in drinking water treatment
Benefits of Certification
Certification to NSF/ANSI 60 ensures that your product meets the regulatory requirements for the USA, Canada, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Spain and the UAE. NSF/ANSI/CAN 60 certification can often meet or fulfill the testing requirements for many other countries as well. Market leaders strive to attain NSF certification as a mark of distinction that provides their customers with assurance that the product is safe for use in drinking water.
NSF/ANSI/CAN 60 testing can also provide validation for water well products and subsurface ground fill materials to U.S. EPA drinking water requirements, as well as testing chemicals used in the hydraulic fracturing process.
Certification also allows your company to:
- List your product in our online directory of certified drinking water treatment chemicals
- Use the NSF certification mark on your products and in your promotional materials
