NSF and UL certification
- National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) is a global independent public health and environmental organization designated by the World Health Organization to provide safety certification. Since teppanyaki equipment comes in direct contact with food, the teppan must pass heavy metal solubility test to ensure no toxic substances (lead, mercury, chromium, arsenic, antimony, etc) are released during high-temperature cooking process.
- Underwriters Laboratories Inc (UL). is among the safety consulting and certification companies designated by the federal government of the United States to provide safety-related certification for electrical appliances, fire safety, kitchen equipment and other related products to protect consumer rights and public safety.
- Applicant must be in charge of the production facility where the product to be certified is manufactured. The certification agency may conduct random on-site inspections (up to four times annually for UL) on production quality and manufacturing process.
- Once certified, the product is backed by the certification agency with detailed information posted on its official website for reference.
- Any violation or failed compliance with the safety standards will result in revocation of the certificate.
