Ultraviolet Microbiological Water Treatment Systems

Published by: 2016-09-09 / 2016-09-09 / 62 pages
The purpose of this Standard is to establish minimum requirements for the reduction of microorganisms
using ultraviolet radiation (UV). UV water treatment systems covered by this Standard are intended for
water that may be either microbiologically safe or microbiologically unsafe. This Standard also specifies
the minimum product literature and labeling information that a manufacturer shall supply to authorized
representatives and system owners, as well as the minimum service-related obligations that the
manufacturer shall extend to system owners.

Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Treatment Systems

Published by: 2016-05-23 / 2016-05-23 / 84 pages
The purpose of this Standard is to establish minimum requirements for materials, design and construction,
and performance of reverse osmosis drinking water treatment systems. This Standard also specifies the
minimum product literature that manufacturers shall supply to authorized representatives and owners, as well
as the minimum service-related obligations that manufacturers shall extend to system owners.

The point-of-use reverse osmosis drinking water treatment systems addressed by this Standard are designed
to be used for the reduction of specific substances that may be present in drinking water supplies (public or
private) considered to be microbiologically safe and of known quality (except that claims for the reduction of
filterable cysts may be permitted). Systems covered by this Standard are intended for reduction of total
dissolved solids (TDS) and other contaminants specified herein. Systems with components or functions
covered under other NSF or NSF/ANSI Standards or Criteria shall conform to the applicable requirements
therein

Commercial Cooking, Rethermalization and Powered Hot Food Holding and Transportation Equipment

Published by: 2016-04-14 / 2016-04-14 / 56 pages
Equipment covered by this Standard includes, but is not limited to, ranges, ovens, fat/oil fryers, fat/oil filters, griddles, tilting griddle skillets, broilers, steam and pressure cookers, kettles, rotisseries, toasters, coffee makers and other hot beverage makers, component water heating equipment, proofing boxes and cabinets, hot food holding equipment, rethermalization equipment, and hot food transport cabinets.


Section 7 of this Standard pertains to food handling and processing equipment that has been designed and manufactured for special use purposes. Food equipment designed and manufactured with a security package is utilized in environments such as correctional facilities, mental health facilities, or some schools. For these environments, where both sanitation and security are concerns, 7 contains exceptions to this Standard that shall only be applicable to the splash and non-food zones of food equipment provided with a security package.


Equipment components and materials covered under other NSF or NSF/ANSI Standards or Criteria shall also comply with the requirements therein. This Standard is not intended to restrict new unit design, provided that such design meets the minimum specifications described herein.

EPOXY F CAS # 19932-27-5 Oral Risk Assessment Document

Published by: 2016-11-01 / 2016-11-01 / 37 pages
This document has been prepared to allow toxicological evaluation of the unregulated contaminant Epoxy F in drinking water, as an extractant from one or more drinking water system components evaluated under NSF/ANSI 61 (2015), or as a contaminant in a drinking water treatment chemical evaluated under NSF/ANSI 60 (2015). Both non-cancer and cancer endpoints have been considered, and risk assessment methodology developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has been used.

Drinking Water Distillation Systems

Published by: 2016-04-05 / 2016-04-05 / 72 pages
This standard establishes minimum materials, design and construction, and performance requirements for point-of-use and point-of-entry drinking water distillation systems and the components used in these systems. Distillation systems covered by this standard are designed to reduce specific chemical contaminants from potable drinking water supplies. systems covered under this standard may also be designed to reduce microbiological contaminants, including bacteria, viruses, and cysts, from potable drinking water supplies. It is recognized that a system may be effective in controlling one or more of these contaminants, but systems are not required to control all.

Systems covered by this standard are not intended for the treatment of water that is visually contaminated (turbid) or has an obvious contamination source, such as raw sewage, nor are systems covered by this standard intended to convert wastewater to microbiologically potable water.
