Dr Chris Campbell has a broad experience of working in the chemical industry. In his current role Dr Campbell works with standard FOCUS, and EU member state specific, models, employing higher tier refinements, to carry out environmental exposure assessments for active substance approval under EU commission regulation 1107/2009. Dr Campbell provides assistance drafting environmental fate sections of the active substance dossier for the EU, and draft Registration Reports (dRR) for product applications in specific EU zones and member states. Dr Campbell has past laboratory experience conducting OECD based studies under GLP guidelines. He has hands on experience of plant metabolism (OECD 501 and 502) and environmental fate (OECD 106, 307 and 308) studies. Drawing on this expertise Dr Campbell assists with study monitoring of studies used to support the environmental fate and behavior data package required under Comm Reg (EU) No. 1107/2009.
In addition, he has investigated higher tier soil experiments and conducted research into the effects of water treatment processes on residues present in water abstracted for human consumption.
In other previous roles Dr Campbell has worked predominantly in the field of synthetic organic chemistry, specifically in the development of novel solid supports for chromatography and enzyme immobilization. He has experience of project management and lead the transfer and eventual closure of an international production site. This background supports Dr Campbell in his current role and enables him to provide advice on synthetic and analytical aspects of regulatory studies.
