NSF Equipment? NSF Certified? Commercial Equipment?
What the heck does all that mean?
This is a topic that gets my ‘red’ up.
What’s in the video this time?
- What exactly is NSF? (Hint, it’s a private company)
- How they don’t actually certify equipment.
- They stamp things as compliant to a code, one they wrote!
- Why every state, pretty much, uses their codes as the standard
- Standard 59- ANSI. What’s that? The code NSF wrote.
- How there are contradictions in the code
- Case study: Carts & Motorized Transport?
- How some states in the past wrote unconstitutional laws requiring NSF Certification. Most now just say, “meets the standards of…”
- How companies can test their own equipment to meet the standards. Ben’s Carts did!
- What Commercial vs Residential means?
- Who decides if a piece of equipment is ‘commercial’? The manufacturer! There is no real standard.
- What to say if your inspector says you have to have NSF or Commercial equipment.
- “Can you direct me to the code about that?”
