Doug Raymond has been the regulatory advocate for the NAA for over a decade and a half.  His expertise lies within his in-depth knowledge of agency rules and his relationship with numerous government agencies.  Doug and NAA have been instrumental in dealing with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) on Consumer Products VOC regulations.  As well as following these regulations throughout the country and soon to be in Canada.  NAA has also taken a pivotal role with EPA on Greenhouse Gas regulation through the Significant New Alternative Policy (SNAP) Program which regulated HFC’s.  With the legal challenge to the SNAP Program, NAA is monitoring state actions on this topic.

NAA is ready and willing to work with any agency on the preservation of the aerosol form.
