“We are very focused at 3M to ensure that our product development in the filtration category works in tandem with a commitment to public health and safety,” said Tom Holler, Director of Business Development for 3M RV/Marine. “NSF Certification is a critical catalyst to this objective, verifying that the strict quality standards of our products achieve appropriate alignment with NSF expectations.”
