Eva Eschenbach is an experienced ecotoxicologist with a broad expertise in registration of plant protection products in Europe. Her key expertise is within the birds and mammals as well as terrestrial organism group (bees, non-target arthropods, soil organisms and plants) but she has also profound experience in the aquatic organism section. For her Master thesis, Eva Eschenbach took part in the ring-testing for the OECD test guidelines on bumble bees (OECD 246 and 247). Within her career at different consultants, starting in 2016, she obtained insights into different active substance and product types. Her experience covers:

  • Strategic advice and planning of (re-)registrations for active substances and formulations for both conventional chemicals and biopesticides including also attendance of pre-submission meetings
  • Data gap analyses to evaluate the completeness of the available data
  • Study monitoring of Tier 1 and higher Tier studies within all ecotoxicological organism groups including, where necessary, statistical re-evaluations
  • Risk assessment (from screening to higher Tier) for all organism groups
  • Environmental classification and labelling
  • Literature reviews
  • Post-submission support to address any potential requests from authorities

Eva Eschenbach is dedicated to closely communicate with clients to address specific needs in line with their registration strategies. She is regularly visiting and presenting at conferences to keep abreast of any new developments in the scientific background and national requirements of environmental risk assessments. Especially during her time in the management board of the SETAC German language branch, Eva Eschenbach developed good contacts within the environmental and regulatory community.
