Product innovation among today's many disposable consumer products has led to a surge in product flushability claims, meaning items suitable for disposal into wastewater treatment systems. If you manufacture products with claims of being flushable, you already know the need and value in having properly tested and verified claims. Waste treatment operators and consumers alike are uncertain about which claims can be trusted, and look to expert sources for help determining which claims are credible.
With over 65 years of experience testing products to protect public health and the environment, NSF International, a not-for-profit organization, is the leading resource for testing and certification to validate flushability claims. Utilizing the INDA/EDANA guidelines for flushability, NSF offers a comprehensive product evaluation program, ranging from confidential research testing of newly formulated products to full certification services that allow use of the NSF Mark on the product labeling and packaging. The NSF Flushable Consumer Products Certification Program provides the industry with proper demonstration of product claims, and provides consumers with information for proper product selection and disposal.
