NSF offers highly customizable testing programs designed to tailor services directly to our clients' needs.
NSF's highly customizable systems allows for flexible testing services ranging from client-supplied single-test product confirmations, to detailed unannounced "Sensitive Ingredient" facility audits including randomly selected product sampling and testing.
(Note: special testing programs may have additional steps).
Please click here if you would like to fill out an online application or speak with NSF's New Client Services. Once your application is received, NSF will assign a program representative to your company. Your program representative will be your primary contact with NSF and will handle all of your needs and questions, overseeing your testing needs every step of the way. After submitting your application, expect your program representative to contact you within 48 hours to begin the testing process for your product(s).
In order to properly facilitate your testing services, your program representative will assist you in filling out NSF's Product Information Form. This from only needs to be completed once per product submitted for testing. NSF will retain this form to reference for any future tests. This process assists our clients by removing duplicative information submittal. The information provided will also aid in determining exactly what testing will be needed for the product. Of course, your representative will be available if you have any question.
A Note About Confidential Business Information (Recipes, Ingredients, Processes): NSF is aware that the information submitted on this form can include confidential business information that is considered proprietary to NSF's clients. While this information is necessary in order to provide a complete picture of the product submitted for testing, NSF has strict measures in place to handle this confidential information. Please ask your program representative for a copy of NSF's non-disclosure agreement.
After you have completed the Product Information Form with your program representative, testing can be initiated at any time. Typically, there are two types of sample submittal:
Depending on the turn-time selected for product testing, a test report will be available within 1-5 business days. NSF is able to supply test reports to clients via email, fax, and U.S. mail. NSF test reports are clear, and indicate exactly what the testing covered for the client. All test reports are stored electronically at NSF as well as supplied to the client in the preferred method(s).
NSF offers continuing monitoring testing for clients to check product consistency over a period of time. Since all pertinent product information is kept on file at NSF, conducting monitoring testing can be set up to take place automatically, or can be initiated at any time by contacting your program representative.
