NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 Readiness Tool
NSF/ANSI/CAN 61: Drinking Water System Components – Health Effects is a leading standard to which certification or compliance is required by 49 U.S. states and 11 Canadian provinces/territories. It’s also required in other key countries around the world, from the local to the national level.
Various products used in water treatment and distribution systems fall under the scope of this standard, such as:
- Protective barrier materials (cements, paints, coatings)
- Joining and sealing materials (gaskets, adhesives, lubricants)
- Mechanical devices, including treatment products (water meters, valves, filters)
- Pipes and related products (pipe, hose, fittings)
- Plumbing devices (faucets, drinking fountains)
- Process media (filter media, ion exchange resins)
- Nonmetallic potable water materials
We’ve tested and certified thousands of products to NSF/ANSI/CAN 61, so we have direct insight into the gaps companies often face when submitting their products for certification. To assist, we’ve developed a readiness tool that can help you understand where you stand in preparing to begin this process with NSF.
The readiness score provided is a general estimate for informational purposes only. It is not an application, nor does it grant any type of certification. Your score does not affect future applications.
