Some of our team here at Enviresearch recently attended the Chemical Watch’s annual Biocides Europe conference, which was held virtually on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd December 2020. It brought together leading figures from industry, member state competent and regulatory authorities, as well as the European Commission and Echa.
Barry Brogan recently joined the regulatory affairs team as our Regulatory Efficacy Consultant and brings extensive experience in the management of efficacy trial programmes for plant protection products, as well as the summarising of efficacy data into regulatory documents.
Prior to joining Enviresearch Barry managed a busy contract research office in the UK, working on efficacy trial programmes for agrochemical companies across the full range of plant protection product types. Through this experience Barry has developed significant expertise in the design of efficient and successful efficacy field trial programmes, as well as a thorough understanding of the requirements relating to efficacy data under Regulation (EC) No. 1107/2009. Further to this, Barry has over twenty years experience working on ecological and agricultural research projects, in both academic and private sector settings, gaining a broad range of skills in field research management, data analysis and scientific report writing.
Barry will be developing and expanding our efficacy services here at Enviresearch, offering our clients a full support service around their efficacy needs, from the design and commission of trials using trusted contract research partners across the EU, to the submission of efficacy data in biological assessment dossiers and draft registration reports.
