NSF/ANSI Standard 61 – Annex G certification is available to manufacturers of products that contact drinking water, including faucets, flexible plumbing connectors, valves, meters and many other product types.

NSF recently developed the evaluation procedures in NSF/ANSI Standard 61 – Annex G to establish an American National Standard to determine product compliance with the 0.25% maximum weighted average lead content requirement of the California Health and Safety Code (commonly known as AB1953) as well as for other states developing similar regulations.
