Quick Tips for Wastewater Regulators When Verifying NSF Certification
NSF evaluates all residential wastewater treatment systems, regardless of treatment technology, in test facilities throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe.
Manufacturers may choose to get certified to various industry standards, including:
NSF/ANSI 40 provides material, design, construction and performance requirements for testing and certifying residential on-site systems.
With more than 45 years of market use and acceptance, NSF/ANSI 40 is the most recognized and required standard in the residential wastewater treatment industry.
NSF provides testing needed to comply with CAN/BNQ 3680-600, a standard based on the methodology of NSF/ANSI 40, but specific to products sold in Canada (due to its cold climate requirements).
The NSF/ANSI 245 standard requires a minimum 50% reduction of total nitrogen. This rigorous standard helps wastewater treatment providers meet a growing demand for nutrient reduction in coastal areas and sensitive environments.
If you manufacture wastewater components and devices not covered by other wastewater standards, testing and certification to NSF/ANSI 46 can help provide market access for those products.
This standard was created for manufacturers of disinfection devices used in treating, recycling, reusing and disposal of wastewater from residential treatment systems.
