Home Product Certification Brochure
To help demonstrate that your products meet safety and performance requirements, trust NSF International. An independent third-party public health and safety organization, NSF develops consensus protocols and standards, tests products against rigid requirements and certifies products to relevant NSF protocols and standards.
NSF tests and certifies home appliances to help demonstrate product efficacy and provide retailer and consumer confidence that the product will perform as claimed by the manufacturer.
NSF’s appliance testing and certification builds on NSF’s expertise in national standards and protocol development, testing and certification to help ensure the safety and quality of consumer products and home appliances.
NSF protocols and standards for home appliances were developed by our public health experts with input from key industry stakeholders including retailers, manufacturers, industry associations and regulatory agencies.
Current NSF standards and protocols for home appliances include:
Consumers are increasingly concerned about product quality and safety, and regulatory compliance has become more complex. Retailers and vendors need confidence that the consumer products they sell meet regulatory requirements and represent their company’s high quality standards. NSF home products certification provides that assurance, offering a simplified solution to ensure only quality products make it to store shelves.

NSF's home product certification protocols were developed by our public health experts with input from key industry stakeholders including retailers, manufacturers, industry associations and regulatory agencies.
The protocols encompass all mandatory regulatory requirements (U.S./Canada/Mexico/EU) for material safety and labeling, and refer to industry accepted standards for verifying product performance and quality. In addition, we develop and incorporate innovative and transparent test methods for verifying product life cycle, durability and functionality. To ensure material safety, the protocols specify analytical tests for confirming the absence of harmful substances (heavy metals, phthalates, bisphenol-A) in products coming into contact with food.
