Why Work Wth NSF?

Standards or protocols can provide credibility and industry acceptance for new products or emerging technologies. NSF is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to develop American National Standards. We have extensive experience working with diverse groups in the development of voluntary consensus documents and can help your organization through this process.

Free Access Standards

NSF provides free online access to read-only versions of NSF voluntary consensus standards that are referenced in U.S. federal laws and regulations. These include:

NSF/ANSI 2: Food Equipment

This standard establishes food protection and sanitation requirements for the materials, design, fabrication, construction and performance of food handling and processing equipment. Food equipment that is certified or classified for sanitation by an ANSI-accredited certification program (such as NSF/ANSI 2) is deemed to comply with Parts 4-1 and 4-2 of the U.S. Food Code.
