North American Flame Retardant Alliance Comments on Draft Regulatory Determinations Report Under Safer Products for Washington
The American Chemistry Council’s (ACC) North American Flame Retardant Alliance (NAFRA) issued the following statement in response to the Draft Regulatory Determinations Report to the Legislature from the Washington State Department of Ecology regarding its implementation of Safer Products for Washington.
