For a drinking water treatment system to become NSF Certified, it must meet five basic requirements:
- Contaminant reduction claims are true.

- The system is structurally sound.
- The advertising, literature and labeling are not misleading.
- The materials and manufacturing process used do not change, meaning consistent product quality over time.
programs benefit regulators, consumers, and manufactures. The regulatory and consumer groups have the assurance that a credible,
objective, independent third-party, widely recognized by public health officials, has actually tested and verified that certified products comply with specific standards.
By participating in NSF Certification programs, with required testing, retesting and inspection/audits by a third party, a manufacturer demonstrates the capability to
produce products complying with recognized standards. The standards specify the requirements for the products, and many include criteria relating to materials,
design, construction and performance.
