NSF International, an independent global organization that writes public health standards, tests and certifies products for the food, water, health science and consumer goods industries, has appointed Clif McLellan as vice president of NSF International’s Global Water Division.
McLellan has more than 18 years of experience with NSF International, most recently serving as director of toxicology for the past 12 years, helping companies, governments and industries improve the safety of water and water-related products globally, including water treatment chemicals, distribution, and reuse systems, drinking water filters, pipes and plumbing components, as well as spas and pools.
McLellan has worked closely with both government and industry to protect and improve human health by creating toxicological assessments as new methods of manufacture and products are developed. In this role, he led NSF’s Risk Assessments and Health Advisory Board to international prominence. McLellan also initiated many successful NSF programs and services, including developing NSF’s relationship with the U.S. EPA’s Design for the Environment program and creating the complementary NSF Green Chemistry Program.
“Clif McLellan is an innovator and leader who has earned respect from water industry leaders, academia and regulatory officials at the national and international level. Clif’s strong technical expertise in the water sector, track record of operational excellence, and his ability to deliver the right solution to meet client needs made him a natural choice for this important role,” said NSF International President and Chief Executive Officer Kevan P. Lawlor. “Under Clif’s leadership, NSF will expand into new water sectors with a clear focus on customer service while utilizing our technical and scientific expertise to help solve some of the world’s most pressing water quality and safety issues.”
