She has represented clients at Working Group (Technical) and CA meetings, liaised with regulatory authorities, (within the EU and globally) and prepared and submitted dossiers for active substances and biocidal products under EU and national legislation, globally. She has successfully placed and monitored studies and has proven success in achieving biocide dossier completeness, active substance approvals/Annex I inclusions and product authorisations.

Ms. Crawford gained her B.Sc. Honours degree in Biophysics from Leeds University in 1982, and then worked as a Project Manager in clinical research for over 17 years. 

Under the Plant Protection Products Directive and Plant Protection regulation, Ms. Crawford has been involved in preparing and submitting dossiers for Annex I approval/listing on the List of approved active substances and providing regulatory support to clients through the EU review process.
