ARLINGTON, VA – National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) President and CEO Eric R. Byer recently issued a statement congratulating Michael Regan on his confirmation as the new Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

In the statement, Byer said, "NACD congratulates Administrator Michael Regan on his confirmation to lead the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. We look forward to working with Administrator Regan on common sense regulatory policies that protect human health and the environment while promoting a strong economic climate for businesses and their employees.

"The Guiding Principles of NACD Responsible Distribution, including recognizing and responding to community concerns about chemicals; making health, safety, security, and environmental considerations a priority in planning; and informing emergency response officials, employees, customers, and the public of information on chemical-related health and environmental hazards, are consistent with EPA's mission to protect human health and the environment.
