NSF P415: Household Water Treatment Options – microbiological

Water is an essential component necessary to sustain human health and quality of life. Yet, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) almost one fifth of the global population reside in developing nations where water is physically scare and one quarter of the global population face water shortages due to a lack of infrastructure. Household water treatment (HWT) systems play an important role in protecting public health where existing water sources are untreated or risk contamination during distribution and storage. > Read More

Gaining Access to the Australian/New Zealand Market for Plumbing Products

WaterMark certification is required for products to be legally installed in the water supply system in Australia and New Zealand. The WaterMark logo can only be issued by an JAS-ANZ accredited certification body such as NSF International.

The WaterMark logo allows products to be easily identified and recognized by plumbers, regulators and consumers as compliant with the mandatory Australian standards and plumbing requirements. > Read More

Consumer Inquiries

A concerned insurance agent recently contacted NSF requesting the certification status of a non-OEM refrigerator filter replacement cartridge. The agent was calling on behalf of a client, who had failed to install the proper cartridge; this caused the refrigerator to leak and resulted in thousands of dollars worth of damage.

The NSF Consumer Affairs office works diligently to educate individuals on the importance of using proper OEM replacement cartridges along with the recommended service cycle in which cartridges must be replaced. View an NSF consumer fact sheet on water filtration systems.
