Chemicals and products used in food service operations need to be trusted — for example, formulations used to clean floors; sanitize sinks, tubs or floor drains; or scrub down kitchen equipment at the end of a shift.
In a customer-facing environment like food service operations, protecting public health is vital. The NSF nonfood compound registration program covers a wide range of products and chemicals frequently used in food service operations. It is a continuation of the USDA product approval and listing program, which is based on meeting regulatory requirements, including FDA 21 CFR, for appropriate use and ingredient and labeling review. It provides independent validation that chemicals, such as cleaners, sanitizers and degreasers, are safely formulated.
Chemicals that are independently validated as being suitable for use in restaurants, catering and other food service operations are listed in the NSF White BookTM.
