NSF has developed over 50 voluntary American National Standards under the scope of public health and safety. NSF/ANSI Standards are developed through involvement of those who are directly and materially affected by the scope of the standard. The process ensures balanced input from industry representatives, public health/regulatory officials, and users/consumer representatives.
NSF is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to develop American National Standards. ANSI's accreditation verifies that NSF develops standards in a manner to ensure openness and due process allowing for equity and fair play.
NSF's expertise to work with diverse groups in the development of voluntary consensus documents is available to organizations that have a need for such experience. If you are looking for a highly credible supplier to assist in the development of consensus documents look no further and contact Jessica Evans, Director of Standards, to start the process.
NSF/ANSI standards are constantly being reviewed and revised to ensure that the standards are up to date and technically sound. The review process leads to draft standards and meeting documentation. Individual documents may be purchased through the NSF Bookstore or a Subscription Service may be purchased to provide electronic or hard copy access to the information on an ongoing basis.
