Human and Chemical Risk Assessment
Any chemical or product that is sold in the UK or European Union (EU) must first be assessed, approved and registered before it can be sent to market. For farmers, food producers, the chemical industry and the general public, registration means that the product can be supplied, sold and used safely.
Every year, thousands of new products and chemicals are developed for the marketplace that will need to be registered. The laws that underpin this registration are complex, and a good understanding is key to a successful application.
A specialist service
Cambridge Environmental Assessments (CEA) was established in 2001 as a research and consultancy group within ADAS, an RSK company. We provide technical and strategic expertise and dossier support for chemical and product registrations across Europe to both commercial and government organisations. Since our formation, we have added a field team to conduct field-fate-based investigative and monitoring studies, an expert in GIS/spatial modelling, a consultancy service for companies seeking compliance under the REACH regulations, and a toxicology service.
Broadly speaking, we provide specialist regulatory support and consultancy to clients and their associations seeking chemical and product authorisations at EU and national levels. Our offering can easily be combined with other regulatory services to create a bespoke package for clients.
We work predominantly with agrochemical companies, but also work with biocide, veterinary and human pharmaceutical, food additive, novel food, cosmetic and general chemical businesses trying to achieve successful authorisation of their product/chemical within a regulatory framework.
However, regulatory acceptability can never be guaranteed, and unforeseen responses from regulators can result in increased costs and delayed time frames.
Providing novel solutions
We pride ourselves on being able to provide novel solutions for an increasingly demanding regulatory world. We use our expertise and experience to advise clients and develop solutions that aim to maximise regulatory acceptability within client budgets and timelines.
We have a proven track record in developing state-of-the-art regulatory risk assessment methods and undertaking research to help inform policy advice and research for government agencies. We also work to advance the regulatory world in which our commercial clients operate.
Our unique combination of expertise and experience means that our clients have access to a wide breadth of industry and regulatory specialists throughout their projects.
