NSF Certification

What is NSF?

NSF is the leading global provider of public health and safety solutions, and is continuously meeting the needs of the community around them. This includes stakeholders, government agencies, and the overall business community. NSF started out in 1944 as the National Sanitation Foundation, which focused on the sanitation of soda fountains. This was the beginning of many of the regulations and standards that they use today. In 1990, they changed their name to NSF International, keeping the NSF as an original part of their name.

The NSF focuses on extensive product testing and material analysis, and they frequently conduct unannounced plant audits to ensure that quality is being maintained. This helps protect food, water, consumer products and the environment from unintentional and intentional contamination. They also provide voluntary auditing, education, and risk management solutions to ensure that businesses are meeting the requirements needed. The NSF mark ensures that the products you are purchasing are thoroughly tested and comply with all NSF/ANSI standard requirements.

“NSF is key to making sure that products meet strict standards for public health protection.”

Hurricane Harvey’s Effect on Chemical Supply

Our thoughts and prayers here at CORECHEM, Inc. are with those who have recently been affected by the Tropical Storm Harvey, which made landfall as a category four Hurricane.  Families and businesses all over the states of Texas and Louisiana have been hit hard by the fury of the storm. As a company, we are sympathetic with the individuals and show our support to anyone affected by the storm.  CORECHEM, Inc. is an active supporter of the committed charitable organization known as the Rapid Relief Team (commonly known as the RRT). (https://www.rapidreliefteam.org/blog/region/us/.) This team has spent many hours with the community at large ensuring that their needs are met after such an awful tragedy.

HOW THIS AFFECTS CHEMICAL SUPPLY :

According to https://www.reuters.com/article/us-storm-harvey-energy-prices-idUSKCN1B8256, 13% of the country’s refining capacity is shut down because of the effects of storm Harvey. Oil refineries all along the coast are cutting down production by half, as employees and raw materials cannot pass the flooded roadways; not to mention excessive flooding and damage to equipment, facilities and processes. Supplies of inorganic chemicals (such as sodium hydroxide and sodium chloride salt) are also falling short, and fuel prices are increasing rapidly, leading to economic fears.

CORECHEM, Inc. is currently monitoring the supply situation for all our products from the coast, to ensure that our customers’ needs are met during this time of trial and limited resource.  Contact us via email (sales@corecheminc.com) or call (800) 258-5829 to discuss specifics on how Hurricane Harvey could impact your chemical supply chain.
