Global public health organization NSF today announced it will discontinue its Automotive Parts Certification program and affiliated automotive certification and registration programs, effective September 30, 2019.
“NSF continually evaluates its programs and services and we considered many factors when making this decision,” said Lori Bestervelt, Executive Vice President and Chief Technical Officer of NSF. “Ultimately, we are choosing to focus on programs and services that are more directly aligned with our long-term, strategic vision for the organization.”
The following NSF programs and protocols will be discontinued on September 30, 2019:
NSF certified parts that meet all applicable NSF certification requirements and are manufactured on or before September 30, 2019 will be considered “NSF certified” for the lifetime of the part. Manufacturers of NSF certified parts may continue selling existing inventories of NSF certified parts after September 30, 2019 as long as the parts meet all requirements and were manufactured on or before September 30, 2019. Parts manufactured after September 30, 2019 are not certified nor eligible to be certified. Any use of a sticker bearing the NSF mark on parts manufactured after September 30, 2019, is prohibited and such marked parts are not certified.
NSF certified distributors, repair shops and recyclers that meet all requirements of certification will remain certified through September 30, 2019. After that time, they must discontinue use of the NSF certification mark in advertisements and marketing material.
