Who is NSF?

Known as The Public Health and Safety Company, NSF International has established an independent reputation as a leader in standards development, product certification, training and education, and risk management.  NSF’s main mission is to protect and improve human health on a global scale. To help fulfill this mission, NSF conducts business in over 100 countries and continues to expand to meet the growing needs of clients worldwide.

The Importance of NSF Certification:

In the last decade, interest in home water treatment products has grown tremendously. Unfortunately, it is not always easy for you to know whether or not a particular product will actually be as safe and effective as a it claims when reducing various contaminant's from your drinking supply.

In order to assist you, a set of national public health standards was developed in order to establish minimum requirements for water treatment products.   Products that meet these strict standards will be certified by NSF International and will bear the NSF Mark.

NSF a third party, not-for profit organization, has a long history of developing and running independent product testing and certification programs. NSF is the leading independent tester of home water treatment products on the market today. Their state of-the-art laboratories and highly skilled staff have the knowledge and expertise to effectively evaluate water treatment products, including:

• Reverse osmosis systems
• Water softeners
• Absorption filters (i.e. carbon, charcoal, ceramic)
• Distillation systems
• Ultraviolet disinfection products

Additionally, NSF Certification is not a one time evaluation. All NSF Certified products are required to meet annual re-certification requirements. These requirements include unannounced plant inspections as well as periodic re-testing of all NSF Certified products. This unique requirement ensures that all NSF Certified products continue to meet all stated requirements year after year.

Only products that bear the NSF Mark meet the strict requirements of the standard. Products stating that they "are made of","meet the requirements of" or "have been tested to" NSF standards have not invested the confidence in their product to have it evaluated by an independent third party certification organization like NSF.

Premier is committed to quality and customer satisfaction. This is why our products meet these strict standards and proudly carry the NSF Certification Mark.
