Third party certification of gas piping and distribution systems provides utility engineers, regulators, manufacturers and communities the assurance that products are independently certified to meet the demands of gas applications. NSF testing and certification of these products can reduce liability, increase confidence and product acceptance, and helps ensure product consistency in meeting all applicable requirements.To see a complete list of NSF-certified gas distribution products, or search by manufacturer, visit the online listings page.
While relatively new to the gas distribution market, NSF has been doing materials and performance testing on plastic pipe and components for over 40 years. In fact, NSF/ANSI Standard 14 for health effects safety and performance of plastics, is well-known and respected by the plastics industry, manufacturers and public health officials around the globe.
Now NSF is applying its expertise from the water industry to the gas distribution industry, providing product testing and certification of plastic piping, materials, fittings, valves and related gas distribution components to industry safety and performance standards. Then NSF takes it one step further with auditing and ongoing monitoring to provide even more peace of mind in gas distribution products certified by NSF.
To provide the utmost confidence to gas utilities, code/regulatory officials, manufacturers and consumers, NSF International created a comprehensive three-part program to ensure the quality and safety of plastic gas distribution piping system components.
Facility Inspections - Three unannounced audits every year, which include:
Using the NSF Mark
After products successfully complete required testing and auditing, they are then authorized to bear the respected "NSF-gas" certification mark, as shown here.
Certified Products Database
All certified NSF products and components are listed on NSF's certified products database, which is updated daily. To see all NSF-certified gas distribution products, or search by manufacturer, go to: www.nsf.org/info/gas_listings.
