What is EPA Approval?

The EPA has its headquarters in Washington, D.C., regional offices for each of the agency's ten regions and 27 laboratories. It has the responsibility of maintaining and enforcing national standards under a variety of environmental laws, in consultation with state, tribal, and local governments.
EPA grants a product distribution, sale and use only after the company meets the scientific and regulatory requirements.
EPA-approved means a product should do what the label says and should not pose an unreasonable hazard to your health.

The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) is a product testing, inspection, certification organization with headquarters in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and laboratories in North America, South America, Europe and China, which is accredited by the American National Standards Institute and the Standards Council of Canada.
