GreenScreen® for Safer Chemicals
NSF's team of toxicologists, chemists and biologists perform comparative chemical hazard assessments by reviewing product ingredients and formulations in accordance with the GreenScreen® requirements. The review helps your company gain information and an understanding of a chemical's potential risk so you can choose safer chemical alternatives.
NSF's assessment includes determining viable transformation products, checking authoritative and screening level lists, running a literature search that evaluates relevant articles and summarizing the results in a report. This assessment is also listed in the GreenScreen® registry, which industry, governments and NGOs use to support product design and development and materials procurements.
