NSF-ISR Provides Alternate and Remote Audits for Management Systems Certification Due to COVID-19

Due to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and impact on our clients, NSF International Strategic Registrations (NSF-ISR) has developed options to ensure the continuity of certification, while doing our part to protect our number one priority, the health and safety of our team members, colleagues and customers.

We recognize during this time we must adapt to continue to meet the needs of our customers while still maintaining the integrity of our business and protecting public health and safety.

As a result of the rapidly changing COVID-19 conditions, the NSF-ISR team has created an alternate audit process to replace in-person auditing for management systems certification. This process includes remote audits, audit boundary extension/rescheduling and certificate extension, depending on client needs and standard requirements. The process will be in place for the next six weeks, and we will evaluate extending it based on conditions at that time.

To learn more about this alternate audit process, we encourage you to review our client FAQ to answer your questions about our interim process as well as our remote audit qualification document.
