Regulatory Studies

Regulatorische Studien im Bereich Pflanzenschutz

For the registration and approval of industrial chemicals (pursuant to the European Chemicals Act / REACH Regulation), pesticides and biocides, analysis must be carried out on the various physiochemical, application-oriented/technical, safety-relevant and ecotoxicological properties, usually in accordance with the principles of good laboratory practice (GLP).

Our services for regulatory studies

The CURRENTA Analytics laboratories offer their entire portfolio of analytical methods for these studies in compliance with GLP – all from a single source. We are certified as a GLP testing facility.

In addition to performing experiments, we offer to organize all the necessary work involved in a study – from drawing up the test plan and performing QA inspections to preparing the final reports (usually in English) and archiving the raw data and retained samples.

We generally conduct studies with our own test manager. However, we are also able to take on studies in which we or one of our qualified partner institutes are subcontracted as the principle investigator (PI).

Thanks to our analytical method network, we are able to carry out the studies that are usually necessary. As a result, we also offer substance identity analyses in addition to regulatory studies conducted in accordance with international standards. We rely on our experience in identification and structure elucidation, particularly when it comes to more complex substances (multicomponent systems, including UVCB substances). This also involves tackling difficult questions, such as whether a substance is a polymer and therefore not subject to registration under REACH.
