AFS is the leading advocate for the metalcasting industry in government and regulatory issues, whether it's through helping members navigate regulations or meeting with elected officials on important topics, such as the new silica standard.
The experts on staff at AFS stay abreast of environmental topics, such as air, water, climate change, and waste and recycling regulations and legislation and advocate for policies that are beneficial to metalcasting businesses and their employees. We offer corporate members Government Affairs and EHS Solutions programs to stay on top of the legislative and regulatory climate.
