Experts in registration work and regulatory affairs

OAC was established in 1984 by Richard (Dick) Makepeace, at a time when the registration of plant protection products was largely voluntary. In 1986 statutory control of plant protection products was introduced and with it more formal requirements for the submission of data and risk assessment at national and European level. OAC has been actively involved in supporting the registration of plant protection products throughout this period, helping our clients to adapt to the requirements of both European legislation, such as Directive 91/414/EC and Regulation 1107/2009, and also UK legislation. At OAC, we are experts in the planning, development and preparation of registration packages for the UK and Ireland.
