BANGALORE, INDIA – IAPMO India is pleased to announce it is now offering one-stop testing and certification services to NSF/ANSI/CAN 61: Drinking Water System Components – Health Effects to manufacturers seeking to market their products in the United States and Canada.
The NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 standard establishes methods for determining contaminants or impurities imparted indirectly to drinking water. Materials tested and certified are separated by sections representing each of the following product categories:
- Section 4: Pipes and related products (pipe, hose, fittings)
- Section 5: Protective and barrier materials
- Section 6: Joining and sealing materials (gaskets, adhesives, lubricants)
- Section 7: Process media (filter media, ion exchange resins)
- Section 8: Mechanical devices (water meters, valves, filters)
- Section 9: Mechanical plumbing devices (faucets, drinking fountains and components)
“It is extremely important that a drinking water filter, purifier or treatment system reduce contaminants as intended, but just as important that the materials that come into contact with drinking water shall not leach any hazardous chemical constituents such as metals, organics and radionuclides,” said Dr. K Chandrasekhar, IAPMO India Managing Director.
In accordance with its mission to protect and improve global health while facilitating speed to market for manufacturers, IAPMO India offers certification of all products covered under the NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 standard. As an independent certifying organization, IAPMO India uses test reports from NABL-accredited laboratories such as Aquadiagnostics Water Research & Technology Centre Limited (AWRTC) to confirm compliance with industry standards such as NSF/ANSI/CAN 61.
