ICC Evaluation Service, LLC (ICC-ES), announced today that it has formalized a working partnership with Pace Analytical Services, Inc., headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to streamline the process of testing and certification to the requirements of NSF/ANSI 61 as well as the many NSF/ANSI standards in the area of Drinking Water Treatment Units. As a result of this partnership, manufacturers can obtain expedited ICC-ES Evaluation Reports to the aforementioned standards while incurring the lowest testing and certification costs in the industry.
“Under this new partnering program, manufacturers can now work with ICC-ES and Pace to improve their time to market, tremendously” said Dawn LaFleur-Qualley, product certification manager for the ICC-ES PMG (Plumbing, Mechanical and Fuel Gas) Program. “With full accreditation of both organizations in the U.S. and Canada, the acceptance of the reports is automatic in the U.S. as well as all provinces and territories in Canada.”
“We are excited about joining forces with ICC-ES to help manufacturers achieve product testing and certification with two high quality organizations,” said Derrick Friedrich, product testing general manager at Pace Analytical Services, Inc. “With the high quality testing and evaluation that the two organizations offer, along with the fastest turnaround time, now manufacturers have the best choice in order to meet their internal project timelines.”
