How to Certify Your Product
At Truesdail our team of Certification Engineers and Chemists are standing by to provide you all of your product evaluation, testing, and certification service needs. Truesdail is ANSI ISO/IEC 17065 accredited as a Certifying Body for consumer plumbing products. Our in-house testing laboratory is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited for all required drinking water methods necessary to certify your products. In addition to industry recognition our internal lab maintains an industry leading 7-day turnaround time on analytical results, this allows us to offer 6-8 week project turnaround times for our customers.
Outlined below is the simple process of obtaining your Certification through Truesdail. We have a number of technical experts on staff that will work closely with you throughout the process to ensure all of your needs are met.
Commonly used forms during the application process:
Submit all applicable product drawings, material information, and any other relevant product information on Truesdail’s Product Manufacturer Information Sheet.
Based on this information Truesdail will provide a detailed quote for our services. Please be assured that all information provided to Truesdail is strictly controlled and confidential. Information can be submitted via email transmission to our Account Manager Mr. Javier Robles, or by secure electronic document delivery.
Step 2: Quote Approval
Utilizing the information provided our Product Certification experts will formulate a price quotation for your project. Once the quote is approved, two additional documents are required:
Truesdail’s Application for Certification
Truesdail Client Service Agreement.
Step 3: Project Submission
When all the proper documentation is received one of Truesdail’s Product Certification Engineers will be assigned to manage your product from beginning to end. Your assigned Engineer will contact you to set up an initial manufacturer inspection, if applicable. At that time, initial samples for testing will be collected, unless otherwise specified.
Step 4: Certification
Once the inspection is completed and the samples are in the Laboratory, the clock for standard turnaround time begins. Standard project turnaround time is six to eight weeks for NSF/ANSI 61 and most mechanical testing, and four weeks for NSF/ANSI 372. During this time samples will go through processing, material review, sample preparation, analysis, normalization of results, and, if applicable, a toxicology review before certificates are issued.
