Christopher P. Kampmeyer
Senior Scientist
Chemical Regulation & Food Safety
District of Columbia

Mr. Kampmeyer combines his EPA FIFRA and state regulatory experience with knowledge from a robust interdisciplinary research background in biochemistry and molecular biology. He has prepared regulatory strategies and reports, submitted conventional and antimicrobial pesticide registrations, amendments and notifications, and liaised communication with officials at Federal and State levels to track submissions or respond to deficiencies. Mr. Kampmeyer routinely assists clients with registration to EPA’s e-submission software, Central Data Exchange (CDX), for faster and more cost-effective submissions to EPA. Proficient with the National Pesticide Information Retrieval System (NPIRS), Mr. Kampmeyer determines competitor data submitted to support product registrations, activity statuses of registered or subregistered products, and compensability for submitted studies.

Mr. Kampmeyer regularly provides scientific support for the development of formal and informal reviews, studies, and models. He conducts chemical fate evaluations and reports for reagents subjected to various production processes. Mr. Kampmeyer liaises communication with contract research laboratories and reviews protocols for the development of data. He also has experience preparing standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the handling of chemical or biological materials. Mr. Kampmeyer also investigates the regulatory status of all manner of chemicals regulated by EPA, FDA, ECHA, and Canada.

Project Experience

Federal and State Pesticide Registration

Developed and drafted EPA regulatory strategies and reports for new pesticide products and for uses to existing products.

Prepared and submitted both conventional and antimicrobial section 3 pesticide registrations, label amendments, minor formulation amendments, and notifications under FIFRA.

Liaised communication with EPA to track submissions and respond to deficiencies.

Setup clients with the EPA e-submission software, Central Data Exchange (CDX), for faster and cost-effective submissions to EPA.

Requested and had authenticated Gold Seals (letters of certification) for products requiring international certification within the Apostille Convention.

Obtained company and establishment numbers and submitted annual establishment reports for clients with pesticide registrations. 

Prepared and submitted pesticide registrations to the fifty United States, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

Pursued updates to registration decisions with each state and responded to state-specific inquiries, particularly New York and California. 

Annually and biennially prepared and submitted product re-registrations or renewals for each state. 

Chemistry and Biochemistry Support

Determined regulatory status of various chemicals regulated by EPA, FDA, ECHA, Canada, and various states. 

Provided biochemistry support and drafted reports for the development of physiologically based pharmacokinetic models for dimethoate and malathion. 

Determined the fate of chemicals used in tanneries, and their breakdown products, during hide treatment. 

Provided chemistry support for bridging data between fasetyl-aluminum and calcium phosphite. 

Drafted both formal and informal reports for internal and external review.

Studies, Data, and Protocols


Identified EPA data requirements and determined compensability of various submitted studies via NPIRS. 

Liaised communication with contract research laboratories to approve proposed protocols and initiate data gathering. 

Prepared and quality assured standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the handling and reporting of regulated genetically engineered plant materials. 

Routinely prepared studies in accordance with EPA and state formatting requirements. 

Researched the mechanism of ubiquinone uptake in yeast by developing a genetic screen.
