OSHA Awards National Testing Recognition to NSF International
A notice was included in the Jan. 23 Federal Register announcing OSHA's final decision expanding the recognition of NSF International (NSF) as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory under 29 CFR 1910.7.
NSF's expansion covers the use of additional test standards. OSHA's current scope of recognition for NSF may be found at www.osha.gov/dts/otpca/nrtl/nsf.html.
The recognition is an acknowledgment that NSF can perform independent safety testing and certification of the specific products covered within its scope of recognition and, as a result, employers may use products approved by NRTL to meet OSHA standards that require testing and certification.
