Our chemicals regulation team has experienced specialists in regulatory affairs, toxicology, ecotoxicology and environmental fate. We are also experienced in higher tier modelling of chemical exposure. We are skilled at applying our knowledge and experience across a range of regulations at the EU and Member State level.
Compliance with chemical regulations is often complicated by disagreement over hazard and risk assessment and, in some cases, proposals for control. Arguments about hazard and risk may lead to requests for additional test data, for example further toxicology or ecotoxicology studies or modelling. Proposals for control may follow from concerns about risk but also from the availability of alternative substances and with regard to socio-economic considerations.
CEA consultants are able to understand and resolve difficult and potentially complex regulatory issues arising with your substances, products and their approvals. For example, we will speedily review the scientific data to enable you to define and understand the problems and the options available to you, leading to an effective, scientifically based defence strategy. We will represent your company before the European regulatory authorities to defend your products, for example under REACH registration and the CoRAP review procedures. We will provide you with expert follow-up advice and resolution strategies, including the provision of expert overviews, recommendations for further scientific study and the careful placing, monitoring, control and review of standard, higher tier or mechanistic studies as appropriate.
