Koppert Biological systems has a position for you as:

Regulatory Affairs Specialist Bio Pesticides

40 hours per week

Koppert, a successful family company

Koppert Biological Systems is an international market leader when it comes to biological crop protection, natural pollination and sustainable cultivation systems. Natural enemies, microorganisms, and biostimulants ensure that the crop is healthy, resilient and vital; both above ground and the root system environment. Our bumblebees take care of the natural pollination of crops. In this manner, we offer our customers a strong and sustainable alternative to chemical crop protection. Koppert has approximately 1100 employees, of whom 400 work in the Netherlands. The head office is in Berkel and Rodenrijs, close to Rotterdam and The Hague, and is easy to reach by public transport. Koppert has 25 subsidiaries worldwide.

Important developments within Koppert

Koppert is experiencing rapid growth and is increasingly shifting its ambitions. In the covered cultivation (greenhouses), biological pest control has become commonplace. For example, for cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes, about 90% is treated and pollinated biologically. However, it is more difficult to protect crops outside the controlled environment of the greenhouse. That is why Koppert’s focus has been moving for years to open field crops and large arable crops. The challenge in these crops is to come up with smart applications for our products with which we improve plant health. In order to position the ambitions of these new developments in the market, we are looking for expansion for our Regulatory Affairs team.

This is a key position!

In this position you provide global regulatory support to various projects, products and colleagues. You contribute to the process of obtaining and maintaining product registrations for Kopperts’ products, ensure the application of standards and provide advice and support to management about regulatory affairs issues in line with the Product Management, R&D and Regulatory Affairs strategy and relevant legislation. You do this in order to support early product registration as well as effective maintenance of existing licenses and to protect the reputation of Koppert.

This includes the following duties/responsibilities:

  • write, coordinate and complete the submission of regulatory documents to (inter)national authorities;
  • You analyze business developments and you proactively suggest Regulatory activities in relation to our market access within the Agribusiness worldwide;
  • prepare responses to (inter-) national legislation facilities questions and other regulatory correspondence;
  • provides regulatory support to product development teams which includes in-depth team involvement with core team members (e.g. marketing, R&D).
  • build and maintain professional relationships with regulatory authorities, consultants and specialists to shape the regulatory environment;
  • Support the development, implementation and evaluation of Regulatory Affairs procedures, processes, standards and systems, evaluate bottle necks and/ or compliancy risks and support the implementation of improvements.

The duties and responsibilities for this position will evolve over time as Regulatory Affairs is of increasing importance for Koppert, because of the need for registration of Kopperts’ products. As Koppert is one of the leading companies in the industry, there is an important role for this department in influencing policy makers, to ensure that (inter)national legislation facilitates future innovations and protects the environment and wellbeing of human and nature.

We are looking for an enthusiastic team player to join this team on the journey to build our business forwards into the future. Our team consists currently 8 professionals (Regulatory Affairs, Legal Affairs and Public Affairs). The cooperation within our teams is informal, as is the general atmosphere. We help each other to get the best solutions for our clients.
