An excellent opportunity for a chemical management, development or regulatory affairs professional to join a multi-national company and specialise in GHS classification and regulatory assessment of highly complex multi-component mixtures.

You will join the EU Product Stewardship department and work in a team of regulatory chemists, SDS authors and toxicologists. Your role will be to assist in the regulatory management of a particular product group; you will review products and determine the specific substance presence, assess the regulatory compliance of the component substances and then calculate the GHS classification of the mixture. This will then be passed to the SDS team who produce the SDSs. The products are complex mixtures with up to 45 components - an excellent challenge and opportunity to focus on the exciting / interesting element of SDS production.

Suitable candidates are likely to have a chemistry based degree and knowledge of the hazard classification process. You will have experience of regulatory compliance assessments of raw materials along with a good understanding of chemical control regulatory frameworks eg REACH, CLP etc. You may be working in a lab currently or a regulatory role - so long as you have a good understanding of the classification process, we want to hear from you!
