Standards are set to protect consumers
Governmental fish oil quality standards do not exist in the United States. To ensure consistent quality, Nordic Naturals adheres to and exceeds the stringent European Pharmacopoeia Standard (EPS) as well as the voluntary standards set by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega–3 (GOED) for all of our oils. These standards guarantee quality products by setting maximum allowances on peroxides, heavy metals, dioxins, and PCBs.

Heavy Metals
All oils used in Nordic Naturals products showed no detectable heavy metals when tested down to the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega–3 (GOED) and Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) standard of 0.1ppm

Dioxins
All oils used in Nordic Naturals products show no detectable dioxins or furans when tested down to 2.0 ppt. Analysis is based on the toxicity equivalent testing methodology established by the World Health Organization (WHO).

PCBs
All oils used in Nordic Naturals products show no detectable dioxin–like PCBs when tested down to 1.0 ppt. The Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega–3 (GOED) limit for dioxin–like PCBs is 3.0 ppt. Analysis is based on the toxicity equivalent testing methodology established by the World Health Organization (WHO).

California’s Proposition 65
While the World Health Organization (WHO) has focused on PCBs that are harmful to human health, California Proposition 65 (Prop 65) simply focuses on total PCBs. The Prop 65 limit is established as <0.09 ppm or 90 nanograms per day. Nordic Naturals’ purity surpasses all PCB standards set by Prop 65, the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED) voluntary monograph, and recognized international standards—as documented by third-party analysis.
