Claire has 10 years’ experience providing regulatory and strategic advice to companies in the chemicals industry.

In 2008, Claire moved into regulatory affairs and joined an Irish consultancy where she gained experience of the EU regulatory processes and registration requirements for industrial chemicals (REACH), plant protection products (PPP) and biocidal products (BPR). In 2010, she joined another consultancy as a regulatory specialist where she gained extensive experience in the biocides area. She managed a wide range of projects and supported clients in providing regulatory and scientific advice on registration strategy, identification of data gaps, dossier preparation and submission and liaison with regulatory authorities to obtain active substance and product approvals.
