Our Standards Development Organization

The GRMA is led by major retailers, manufacturers and many other industry stakeholders. NSF International was asked to bring together all these different stakeholders at the start, but now GRMA members are leading the effort. The GRMA is not an NSF International program. As an ANSI-accredited standards development organization (SDO), NSF International facilitates the ANSI standards development process on behalf of the GRMA.
