Coway leads the way with purification certifications
For water purifiers to be sold in the domestic market, they are required by law to receive the Korea Certification mark to ensure their water purification capacity. Coway went one step further with its water purifiers armed with RO Membrane Filters and Nanotrap Filters, receiving certifications for filtering 30 and 45 different adulterants on each filter respectively.
In addition to domestic certifications, Coway’s pursuit of quality also came to fruition in the form of numerous overseas certifications. Ever since Coway became the first company in the domestic market to receive a certification from the Water Quality Association (WQA) of the United States in 2008, more than 80 Coway products received the WQA certification, making Coway the domestic water purifier company with the most WQA certifications. More remarkably, Coway also received the Gold Seal Mark from WQA. The Gold Seal Mark is a certification given by the WQA to products which go through a rigorous toxicity test covering more than 200 substances and a purification quality test. The certification can arguably be regarded as one of Coway’s finest achievements. With other certifications from WQA on filtering various toxic substances such as Endocrine Disruptors, Perfluorinated compound, and “NSF/ANSI 58” certifications on 38 products with RO Membrane for filtering uranium substances, Coway’s products can be considered the company abiding by the highest quality.
Coway does not discriminate when it comes to whether unwelcome matters in water are organic or inorganic. Following public fear of bacterial infection, Coway’s Ciroo (Coway Intensive Reserve Osmosis) Direct Water Purifier recently received the NSF P231 certification from WQA, ensuring the effective elimination of micro-organisms and bacteria alike. Again, by acquiring this certification, Coway became the only domestic company to do so.
“Acquiring WQA certifications is our way of earning trust from our customers. We aim to make sure customers easily access potable water via constant research and development,” said an official from Coway.
