Regulatory Science
What exactly does regulatory science mean

Regulatory Science is a science that deals with technical and scientific principles, processes and methods to ensure the safety, performance and effectiveness of i.e. biocidal products.


In contrast to regulatory affairs, Regulatory Science does not care about how laws, regulations or guidelines are monitored and enforced or which documents manufacturers have to provide in which form.


Rather, regulatory science is concerned with scientifically evaluation of the usefulness and effectiveness of these regulations.


Whoever acts should be aware of his actions and the associated consequences!

Particularly in the context of current biocide legislation, the impression often arises that many regulators - i.e. legislators and authorities - are not complying with precisely this requirement and that both the practical and scientific principles are not sufficiently taken into account in the decision-making process, although this regulation has best intentions:  to provide safe and effective products for humans, animals and the environment.


Every law, regulation and directive has "side effects". In order to understand and optimize the benefit-risk ratio for manufacturers of products under the legal requirements, an extensive understanding of economic, technological and practical issues is required. Evaluating these and bringing them into balance is a central task of regulatory science.

DESICON's advice in the field of regulatory science helps to evaluate the optimal ratio of benefit and harm during product development and approval, which can arise from legal requirements. We ensure that you as a manufacturer of biocidal products are in balance between over-regulation and under-regulation in order to create safe, effective, sustainable and affordable products.
