Changes to NSF 61/600 Standard

The Impact for Potable Water Linings

Changes to NSF/ANSI/CAN 61: Drinking Water System Components will take place on January 1, 2023. Due to the upcoming proposed changes, a broad number of solvent-based lining products currently used in the potable water market will be affected and potentially eliminated from certification under the standard.
