Home Products and Appliance Certification

Give consumers greater confidence in your brand’s quality, safety and performance by certifying your home products and appliances.

Demonstrate that your products meet safety and performance requirements with the help of NSF. Our protocols and standards for home products and appliances were developed by NSF’s public health experts with input from key industry stakeholders including retailers, manufacturers, industry associations and regulatory agencies.

Strengthen Your Brand

In a marketplace of look-alike products, an NSF certification can help your products stand out.

  • Use the internationally recognized NSF Certified for Home Use mark on your certified products
  • Have your certified products listed in our public, online directory

Independently Verify Compliance to Regulations
