  • Why Work With NSF?

NSF provides testing for compliance with Attestation De Conformité Sanitaire (ACS). The French regulations (French order of 29 May 1997) require the laboratory assessment of products and materials in contact with drinking water to verify that they are not capable of modifying the organoleptic, physico-chemical and microbiological properties of water.

Benefits of Certification

NSF provides companies with a single point of contact to help navigate the various regulatory, testing and certification requirements for drinking water treatment, distribution and plumbing products in various countries including France. By doing so, we are able to streamline multiple country approval projects from the initial application to final approval, which reduces testing costs and a product’s time to market.

Why Work With NSF?

With more than 70 years’ experience working with manufacturers and national, state and provincial regulatory agencies, NSF is well-versed in navigating global market access. Manufacturers all over the world trust NSF, the respected independent testing and certification organization, to provide the approvals needed to leverage new global opportunities.
