It also confirms products are below the maximum levels allowed to be considered safe. NSF/ANSI Standard 372 tests products for lead content to ensure that they comply with lead content requirements for “lead free” plumbing as defined by California, Vermont, Maryland, and Louisiana state laws and the U.S. Safe Drinking Act in effect as of January 4, 2014.11
