9 Common Q&As about NSF 61 Rubber

The NSF 61 certification was developed to ensure the safety of drinking or potable water. This certification has become increasingly critical as the majority of American states have provided their own state requirements for materials that interact with potable water.

Therefore, this short list of questions and answers can provide you with a working understanding of the specification and how it relates to your rubber products. For any areas that you’d like more clarification on or any application specific questions, you can speak to our experienced team at sales@warco.com or 714-532-3355.

1. What is the NSF 61 specification?

NSF 61 is a standard established by the National Sanitation Foundation that certifies whether materials are safe to interact with potable or drinking water. While the scope of the certification is broad, the general objective is to ensure that potentially dangerous chemicals do not leach into the water.


2. When is NSF 61 required or recommended?

While each application, region and state will have their own requirements; generally, any drinking water or potable water application may require NSF 61 required materials. According to NSF, a majority of US states require materials to have an ANSI-Accredited Certification.


3. What rubber products or applications does it apply to?

Any products that come into contact with potable water. This can include

  • Protective barrier materials
  • Joining and sealing materials (gaskets)
  • Mechanical devices including treatment products (water meters, valves, filters)
  • Pipes and related products (pipe, hose, fittings)
  • Plumbing devices (faucets, drinking fountains)
  • Non-metallic potable water materials


4. What is NSF 372?

Often noted within NSF 61, NSF 372 is a test methodology designed to detect and prevent dangerous levels of lead leaching. The certification is related to lead-free plumbing applications in specific US States and SDWA (Safe Drinking Water Act).


5. What is AWWA C111/A21.11?

AWWA (American Water Works Association) is a non profit international group that advises on water management. Also referenced regularly with NSF 61, this standard provides the minimum requirements for specific water related applications such as rubber gasket joints for ductile-iron pressure pipe & ductile-iron and gray-iron fittings.


6. What is the difference between NSF 61 Approvable vs NSF 61 Listed?

An NSF 61 listed rubber product complies with NSF 61 testing requirements and is listed under a nationally recognized, accredited listing agency.

While an approvable product may perform similarly to a listed product, many end users and regulatory bodies are now requiring the use of listed materials. In those cases, using listed materials in your finished components can be extremely beneficial in expediting the certification process.


7. How to know if your rubber manufacturer and their products are certified?

In order to be listed, a rubber manufacturer must provide their compound to a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) that has been certified to evaluate compliance with NSF 61. After comprehensive testing, a listing is established on the nationally recognized, accredited agency.


8. Are all NSF 61 materials certified to the same level?

No, NSF 61 products can be certified to be acceptable within 3 levels of water temperature

  • Lowest: Cold Water “CLD 23”, 23 +/- 2 °C
  • Middle: Domestic Hot “D. Hot”, 60 +/- 2°C (140 +/- 4 °F)
  • Highest: Commercial Hot “C. Hot”, 82 +/- 2 °C (180 +/- 4 °F)


9. Anything else that I need to know about NSF 61?

NSF 61 listed products must be regularly renewed, ensuring that your rubber manufacturer maintains their compliance by checking their listings periodically. In addition to the specifications listed above, NSF 61 can also be labeled as NSF/ANSI/CAN 61. These are equivalent specifications.
