At IIAR our mission is to provide advocacy, education, and standards for the benefit of the global community in the safe and sustainable design, installation and operation of ammonia and other natural refrigerants.  Creating a positive working relationship with government agencies that are responsible for the oversight and regulation of our industry is part of our mission.  In creating the Government Support Portal, our goal is to become a resource to facilitate the communication and education of both our members and concerned government agencies for the safe, efficient, and sustainable use of ammonia and other natural refrigerants.
