NSF International certification program to verify ‘flushable’ product claims

ANN ARBOR, MICH. — NSF International has launched a new certification program that provides third-party verification of consumer product claims asserting they can be safely disposed of via toilet flushing, according to a press release.

Developed in response to the increasing number of flushability claims on many disposable consumer products, the new NSF Flushable Consumer Products Certification Program provides a solution to many clogging issues associated with wastewater treatment systems, the release stated.

The comprehensive program evaluates products against rigorous flushability guidelines developed by industry experts called the “The Guidance Document on the Flushability of Nonwoven Consumer Products,” which provides a comprehensive framework and test methods for evaluating flushability characteristics.

Certified flushable products will bear the “NSF Certified Flushable” Mark, demonstrating compliance with NSF’s stringent criteria and indicating whether certified products are suitable for a sewer system, a septic system or both, according to the release.
