Welcome to the winter edition of the SCC Newsletter for 2020.
These are extraordinary, challenging times for all of us. So far, we are grateful at SCC we can continue to provide support and advice to all our clients, irrespective of whether we work in the office or from home. Well-developed communication equipment and a restrictive and user-friendly hygiene concept in the company enable us to serve you as you are accustomed from us.
In this issue, you will find features on agrochemical topics (such as efficacy and adjuvant registration), biocides (K-BPR), chemical regulations (e.g. registration updates under REACH) and regulatory science (FOCUS degradation kinetics guidance).
As you might have noticed on our website, we have optimised and enlarged our business services (EU services, International services) and provide regulatory guidance for agrochemicals & biorationals, efficacy and chemicals. We also founded SCC UK in July 2020 to guarantee flexible and unremitting support on short notice, regardless of the Brexit outcome. While the transition period is coming to an end, there is still no substantial progress in negotiations for a trade deal with the most crucial question remaining unclear: Deal or no deal?
In the fast-moving world of regulation, SCC is committed to keeping its customers on course for success. We provide high-quality consulting services for your scientific and regulatory needs. Our expertise extends to exposure modelling and risk assessment and covers a broad range of areas, such as agrochemicals and bio-pesticides, biocides, chemicals, cosmetics, consumer products, feed and food additives, food contact materials, medical devices, GLP archiving solutions, and task force management.
Finally, all of us here at SCC would like to wish you a joyful festive period despite the COVID-19 situation worldwide. Stay healthy and safe!
Dr Friedbert Pistel
