NSF laboratories worldwide are ISO/IEC 17025 accredited for testing and calibration and the Ann Arbor location is an OSHA Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory.

Our credibility is our most valued asset. NSF International and its family of companies (NSF) is committed to act impartially in carrying out our certification, testing, inspection, registration, validation and verification activities. Independent mechanisms established by top management, along with corporate policies and procedures, control conflicts of interest and ensure the objectivity and transparency of all aspects of our activities.
NSF manages risks to impartiality by adhering to accreditation standards and regulatory requirements and policies; providing the necessary training to appropriate staff; and ensuring that our evidence-based processes are documented. Together these actions safeguard against inappropriate influence from interested parties.
Providing service to our customers that meets their expectations is our primary function. In all aspects of our services we act impartially and safeguard our mark as a representation of our credibility, in order to provide the true value of third-party services to our customers.
