What do the letters "NSF" stand for?
The letters in our organization’s name do not actually stand for any specific words today. They were derived from our founding name dating back to the 1940s, which was the National Sanitation Foundation. Our name was changed to NSF International in the early 1990s when the National Sanitation Foundation and NSF Testing Labs were merged.
How can I obtain current NSF Listings of certified products?
Specific listings of any NSF-certified product are free to anyone visiting our website. These listings are updated daily.
How can I get on the mailing list for NSF publications?
By completing the application form and mailing or faxing it to NSF International, Attn: Marketing, 789 Dixboro Road, Ann Arbor, MI 48105.
Who do I contact with questions regarding specific NSF or NSF/ANSI Standards (not certified products)?
Send letter or email to Jessica Evans (email@example.com), Director of Standards. Please enclose all pertinent information regarding the issue and the affected standard.

How do I file a complaint about a product?
To file a complaint, please complete the online complaint / investigation form. Hard copies of the form may be obtained by contacting Stan Hazan, Senior Director, Regulatory Affairs and Association Programs, at 800-NSF-MARK (800-673-6275) or email@example.com.

What does NSF do with a complaint about certified products?
Upon receipt of a complaint form, a copy is forwarded to the appropriate service representative for validation. Validation should occur through an investigation at the site within two weeks. If the complaint is found valid, the subject company of the investigation is informed. If found invalid, the complaint file is closed and placed in the official NSF corporate file. If a complaint is valid, the manufacturer is instructed to produce corrective action to regain conformity to the standard.
What is a public notice?
A public notice is a process by which NSF informs the public, industry, and regulatory communities of a non-conformance of public health significance found in a listed product that is not corrected. These notices are generally performed through the use of publications, press releases, and website notification.
