I am policy advisor for Dutch CA for REACH and CLP. Employed at RIVM since 2001 in various positions related to chemicals management. I have a University Master Degree in Environmental Sciences (1996). Am specialised in Regulatory toxicology and risk assessment. Currently I coordinate NL CA efforts within REACH on Authorizations and Restrictions. Further, I am one of two Dutch appointed SEAC members. As regards Authorization I am part of a team where the focus of my coordination lays post Annex XIV prioritisation, hence from application for authorisation until decision making in REACH Committee and enforcement.
