>>Huntsman Earns SPFA Supplier Accreditation
SPFA is pleased to announce that Huntsman Corporation has become the first SPFA PCP Accredited Supplier Company! This prestigious distinction of <b>SPFA PCP Accredited Company</b> is part of Phase II of the PCP, which was launched at the 2014 SprayFoam Convention in Palm Springs, Calif.

d.     Field Examiner(s)
3)     Supplier must have a Best Practices/Risk Management Code of Conduct or signed equivalent with the Spray Foam Coalition
