No other independent testing programs require
companies to comply with the strict standards
imposed by NSF and its product certification
programs. From extensive product testing and
material analyses to unannounced plant inspections,
NSF is the only third-party testing organization to
undertake a complete evaluation of every aspect of a
product’s development before it can earn our certification.
NSF Certification is not a one-time activity. NSF does not just test a single
model of a product and give it the okay. NSF certification programs
require regular on-site inspections of the SafeNow manufacturing
facilities. In addition, certified products are periodically re-tested against the
requirements of the most current version of the applicable national standard.
If for any reason a product fails to meet one or more of our certification criteria,
NSF takes whatever enforcement actions we deem necessary to protect the public,
including product recall, public notification, or de-certification.
NSF does not rate or compare the products they certify. NSF understand that
each consumer has unique needs, so programs are developed to verify that
each product NSF certified meets the requirements of the applicable national
standard. In addition, if a performance claim is being made for a product
NSF ensures that the product actually is able to meet that claim.
Credibility is what NSF Certification is all about.
NSF uses the terms “certified” or “listed” in connection with a product, good,
component, system, material, compound or ingredient (“Product”). A Product
that is certified or listed means that NSF:
(1) reviewed the Product, most often through a sampling of the Product;
(2) determined at the time of the review that the Product complies with the
relevant NSF consensus standard and/or protocol (“Standard”); and
(3) conducted or will conduct (as more specifically set forth in the Standard)
periodic audits to review whether the Product continues to comply with the
After NSF certifies or lists the Product, NSF authorizes the manufacturer of the
Product to use the NSF Mark on or in connection with the sale, use or
distribution of that Product(s). The NSF Mark conveys that an independent,
third-party organization (NSF) has determined that the Product complies with
the relevant Standard.
The NSF logo on SafeNow Products means that SafeNow meets or exceeds
current national standards for safety and effectiveness.
