Our regulatory expertise includes regulatory consultants and scientists who have extensive experience dealing with U.S., EU, and global issues and regulations. We assist chemical manufacturers, pesticide registrants, grower/commodity groups, and trade associations in dealing with issues that affect their ability to do business effectively. Our regulatory consultants and scientists provide strategic advice concerning regulatory compliance. We specialize in resolving difficult pesticide and non-pesticide issues involving the U.S. EPA, state agencies such as California Department of Pesticide Regulation, the EU and its member states, and Codex Alimentarius.
Our U.S. multidisciplinary team has extensive expertise in the following areas of regulation: Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA), Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), and Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Exponent consultants develop innovative, science-based registration and product development strategies for conventional chemicals, biopesticides, and antimicrobials. Exponent consultants use sound scientific data in our review process, and we develop risk communication messages designed to put risk issues in proper perspective.
Exponent’s consultants work with clients to consider the “Big Picture” by assessing and integrating the regulatory, technical, strategic, and business aspects of each issue on local and global levels. Using this integrated approach, our consultants advise clients on issues such as product registration, due diligence, registrability assessments, product development, product stewardship strategies, experimental use permits, and reduced risk submissions. Exponent consultants have been involved in the preparation of vulnerability analyses, including the evaluation of regulatory, quality control, and business systems, and the development of standard operating procedures, global regulatory models, and compliance manuals and programs.
