Please contact Mary in our office at email naa@nationalaerosol.com with all of your aerosol industry concerns.


Doug Raymond and the NAA were the first to respond to a threat from the National Weight & Measures (NWM) organization to attempt to change the declaration of weight.  NAA followed up with this issue in July and is in the process of developing a consensus to take back to NWM in January 2013.  In July, NAA took the leadership against South Coast Air Quality Management District’s (SCAQMD) inclusion of CTS-04 (provision on LVP) in the Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP).  Since that time, the industry has formed a large coalition of aerosol companies and other associations to oppose the CTS-04 provision.  In addition, NAA has been active in working with CARB on new amendments to modify the Aerosol Coating and Aerosol Adhesive limits.  These   issues will follow us into 2013 and beyond.
