NSF Buys U.K.-based Food Safety-Related Registrar

NSF International acquired InS Services, a United Kingdom-based registrar of lubricants, greases and other nonfood compounds approved for use during food and beverage processing. Products currently registered by InS Services will be listed in the NSF White Book, the organization’s online listing of registered nonfood compounds and proprietary substances, in 2020.

In 1999, the U.S. Department of Agriculture selected NSF International to continue its Registration and Listing Program for Proprietary Substances and Nonfood Compounds. Today, lubricants, water treatment products, cleaners and other compounds that meet the relevant food safety standards are listed in the NSF White Book, which is internationally used and recognized by product manufacturers, food processors and regulators.
