NSF Opens Testing Lab in Shanghai

SHANGHAINSF International announced the opening of a new testing laboratory in Shanghai. The NSF Shanghai Testing Laboratory will offer testing in the areas of food equipment, dietary supplements and ingredients, and consumer products, and the staff will provide on-site training in the areas of food safety, pharmaceutical, medical device and dietary supplement manufacturing.

NSF International is pleased to bring its testing and technology services to China and Asia," said said Lori Bestervelt, Ph.D., NSF International senior vice president and chief technical officer. The combination of Asias growing export market and the need to ensure the safety and quality of raw materials, ingredients, consumer products and food creates a greater demand for third-party testing and certification services from a reputable organization like NSF International. The opening of the NSF Shanghai Testing Laboratory will help companies in Asia ensure the quality of their materials, demonstrate compliance with international public health standards, and conserve resources by eliminating the need to ship product to the United States for testing."

The new NSF Shanghai Testing Laboratory will offer chemical analysis and engineering evaluation services in support of NSFs certification programs. It also will offer test-only services. The current services include Food Equipment testing; Dietary supplements and ingredients, food and food ingredient testing, pharmaceutical testing and excipients testing; and consumer product testing.
