EBIC has also appointed new leaders for two of its technology task forces:
Nicolas Lindemann (Tradecorp) is the new head of the Task Force on Salts, Minerals and Chemicals. This task force leads discussions on critical issues related to substances that can produce effects regulated under more than one regulatory framework (often referred to as “dual-use substances”).
Silvia Fernandez (Koppert Biological Systems) is the new head of the Task Force on Micro-organisms. A key priority for this task force is the continuing dialogue on risk assessment of products containing micro-organisms.
