Katie Hill
Managing Scientist
Chemical Regulation & Food Safety
Derby (UK)

Ms. Hill specializes in the EU REACH Regulation, in particular the registration and testing requirements and procedures for both “Phase-in” and “Non Phase-in” substances. She also continues to be actively involved in the worldwide notification of new industrial chemicals.

Ms. Hill gained her honours degree in chemistry from the University of Durham in 2005 and then went on to work as a consultant specialising in chemical risk assessment under the Control of Substance Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations.

In 2007, while working for an international metals association, Ms. Hill assumed responsibility for REACH registration of tin metal on behalf of a consortium of manufacturers and importers. She was also responsible for lobbying on regulatory and sustainability issues impacting on industry, most notably in relation to the use of tin metal in food contact applications.

Prior to joining Exponent in 2017, Ms. Hill worked within the corporate product stewardship function for a British multinational speciality chemicals and sustainable technologies company with activities in over 30 countries. In this role she was responsible for strengthening core competency in regulatory product stewardship within the organisation through provision of regulatory and product safety assessments for company products and process materials. She worked to ensure regulatory compliance of company products and raw materials with particular focus on registration and notification requirements within the relevant operating territories.
