What do the letters "NSF" stand for?
NSF International was founded as the National Sanitation Foundation in 1944, but we changed our name to NSF International in 1990 as we expanded our services beyond sanitation and into global markets. The letters NSF do not represent any specific words today.

What does NSF do with a complaint about certified products?
If the complaint is validated by NSF, the manufacturer is required to take appropriate corrective action. If the complaint is not validated by NSF, no further action is taken.
What is a public notice?

These notices are generally performed through the use of publications, press releases, and website notification.
