SGS gains ANSI accreditation to provide food sanitation testing and certification
Saturday, 06 November, 2021, 14 : 00 PM [IST]
SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, was granted accreditation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to provide third-party certification of NSF/ANSI standards for food service and commercial appliance equipment products.

The accreditation was awarded by ANAB, ANSI’s accreditation board in North America, to SGS’s head certification office in Suwanee Georgia, USA on October 1, 2021. It gives the green light for the company to deliver food sanitation testing and certification services for the first time. The award is a welcome expansion of the company’s electrical and electronic (E&E) portfolio to support the commercial food industry in delivering high quality, safe and compliant products to North American markets.

Food service equipment in the United States is required to be compliant with national sanitation requirements (NSF). Now, as an ANSI-accredited certification body, SGS can certify food equipment as specified in the FDA Food Code in accordance with 12 NSF/ANSI standards:
  • NSF/ANSI 2 Food Equipment
  • • NSF/ANSI 3 Commercial Warewashing Equipment
  • • NSF/ANSI 4 Commercial Cooking, Rethermalization and Powered Hot Food Holding and Transport Equipment
  • NSF/ANSI 5 Water Heaters, Hot Water Supply Boilers and Heat Recovery Equipment
  • NSF/ANSI 6 Dispensing Freezers
  • NSF/ANSI 7 Commercial Refrigerators and Freezers and
  • NSF/ANSI 8 Commercial Powered Food Preparation Equipment
  • NSF/ANSI 12 Automatic Ice Making Equipment
  • NSF/ANSI 13 Refuse Processors and Processing Systems
  • NSF/ANSI 18 Manual Food and Beverage Dispensing Equipment
  • NSF/ANSI 25 Vending Machines for Food and Beverages
  • NSF/ANSI 51 Food Equipment Materials
The company will undertake all testing from its laboratories in Guangzhou and Shanghai, China.

By expanding its services into food sanitation, it is well placed to provide a one stop shop to commercial electrical food equipment manufacturers and retailers, ensuring it is best placed to meet all regulatory requirements for food safety, electrical safety, energy efficiency and sustainability.

John Ciliege, global head of NRTL said: “We are delighted to receive this accreditation which we know will be welcomed by manufacturers and retailers around the world looking to demonstrate that their products are safe to use in restaurant and commercial kitchen settings, and comply with US food safety regulations.

“SGS is recognised as the global benchmark for quality and integrity, and this accreditation ensures we are even better placed to help those organisations within the commercial food and equipment sector trade with confidence in the global marketplace.”
