  1. Tamper Resistant Water Filters Specialty Media, LLC Prepared By: Bob Lisenko For Specialty Media, LLC • Increase - Public Safety • Reduce - Liability

  2. Summary • Tamper-resistant water filters, intended for public locations, will reduce the risk for potential contamination of drinking water and improve public safety. • The NSF Joint Committee should consider inserting protocols into Standard 42 & 53, and other applicable DWTU standards, providing water filter manufactures the option to market tamper-resistant water filters under an industry standard. • NSF Standard 60; Section 3.9 can be used as template to incorporate security standards for water filters. • The Standard was modified after a drum of NSF certified sodium hypochlorite was contaminated and placed online.

  3. Benefits of Tamper Resistant Water Filters • Authorized Access: The benefit of a tamper-resistant water filter is that only authorized personnel would be able to gain access and disengage the filter once it has been placed in service. • Public Safety Benefits: • Reduces the probability of a water filter being tampered/ poisoned. • Increases the integrity of certified water filters by eliminating the probability of retrofit replacement filter elements being used which are of unknown quality. • Business Benefit: • Retrofits/Knockoffs: OEM filter manufacture’s can protect their replacement filter business from retrofits.

  9. Suggested Amendments to NSF Industry Standard protocols. Tamper-Resistant Water Filter LanguageAdd to NSF Standard 53, Section 5: Tamper-Resistant requirements 5.5 Product Security - Products certified under this standard shall be protected to maintain the quality required by this standard. Reasonable, effective measures shall be made to control access (i.e., disengage) to water filters once they are installed in public and commercial applications which will provide the manufacture and purchasing user of product with the ability to reduce/eliminate tampering. 5.5.1 Definition of tamper-resistant water filters – Water filters having one or more barriers or indicators to entry, which allow only authorized personnel to disengage a water filter once it has been installed and placed into service. 5.5.2 Security requirements for Water Filters – Water filters shall be delivered in tamper-resistant configurations as defined in Section 5.5.1. Locking mechanisms, alarms and remote monitoring systems constitute three forms of acceptable tamper-resistant water filters. 5.5.3 Locking water filters – Water filters may be secured with a locking mechanism, which incorporates a key, combination, code or scan that will allow only authorized personnel to disengage a water filter once it has been placed into service. 5.5.4 Alarmed water filters – Water filters may be secured with an audible alarm that will signal that the water filter has been disengaged once it has been placed into service. 5.5.5 Monitored water filters – Water filters may be secured with a remote monitoring system that will signal that the water filter has been disengaged once it has been place into service.
