NSF/ANSI 49 Annex I-1
We certify the design, construction and performance of biosafety cabinets to NSF/ANSI 49 and provide biosafety cabinet field certifier accreditation.
NSF's biosafety cabinetry program was initiated in the 1970s at the request of the regulatory community, including the Centers for Disease Control, the National Institutes of Health and the National Cancer Institute.
Biosafety Cabinet Field Certifier Accreditation
NSF operates two accreditation programs that evaluate the proficiency of individuals who perform field certification of biosafety cabinets: an enhanced accreditation program for field certifiers in North America and a basic accreditation program for field certifiers outside of North America.
Biosafety Cabinetry Certification: NSF/ANSI 49
NSF International tests and certifies Class II (laminar flow) biosafety cabinetry, which is designed to minimize the hazards inherent in working with biosafety agents of levels 1, 2, 3 or 4.
