UK pest control products manufacturer PelGar International has appointed Anne Withall as Regulatory Manager.
Anne joins the Hampshire based company after 20 years with Syngenta, where she worked on the regulatory affairs for a wide range of public health products and agrochemicals. She has a particular expertise in the rodenticide sector, and will be guiding PelGar’s products through review under the European Biocidal Products Directive.
“The process of getting active ingredients through national and European registration is becoming increasingly complex and requires specialist knowledge,” says PelGar managing director Gareth Capel-Williams.
“Anne brings unrivalled expertise and contacts within the industry which will ensure we can get our active ingredients listed on Annex 1. This will allow our existing products, and all those we have in development, to be progressed out into the market.”
Mrs Withall says “I am delighted to be part of the PelGar team, especially at a time when increased regulation is starting to create real barriers to the future progress of pest control companies.
“PelGar has a reputation for developing and manufacturing a wide range of innovative and novel rodenticide and insecticide products, and has ambitious plans for the future. I am looking forward to playing my part in helping the company achieve these.”
