What do the letters "NSF" stand for?
The letters in our organization’s name do not actually stand for any specific words today. They were derived from our founding name dating back to the 1940s, which was the National Sanitation Foundation. Our name was changed to NSF International in the early 1990s when the National Sanitation Foundation and NSF Testing Labs were merged.

If the complaint is found valid, the subject company of the investigation is informed. If found invalid, the complaint file is closed and placed in the official NSF corporate file. If a complaint is valid, the manufacturer is instructed to produce corrective action to regain conformity to the standard.
What is a public notice?
A public notice is a process by which NSF informs the public, industry, and regulatory communities of a non-conformance of public health significance found in a listed product that is not corrected. These notices are generally performed through the use of publications, press releases, and website notification.
