Collaborating With NSF

NSF's international standards and programs are often cited in federal, state or local regulations, including codes that may impact public health. Regulators serve on the joint committees that develop and maintain these consensus-based American National Standards.

Regulatory representation on NSF standards committees provides a way for regulatory stakeholders to provide input into the development of NSF's standard. This open and transparent cooperation has served the best interests of all stakeholders, especially health departments, water works utilities and public health professionals.

Cooperation between NSF and regulatory bodies has grown significantly over the decades. NSF is a reliable, trusted partner that provides product listings, copies of standards and expert consultation to regulators.
