Target audience

Are you looking for a challenging opportunity in a leading organisation at the EU and international level and contributing to the protection of the health of European citizens and the environment?

You will play a key role in supporting your team in a challenging and exciting time for ECHA and EU chemicals management: by facing front-edge scientific and regulatory questions, including integration with other regulations and agencies in the one-substance-one-assessment approach; and by supporting the revision of processes and way of working to address the increasing number of evaluations ECHA undertakes.

Why we are consulting

We currently invite applications for the Biocidal Active Substance Unit and for the Biocidal Products Unit. These are the units responsible for ECHA's activities related to the evaluation of active substances and applications for Union authorisation. They also coordinate the scientific assessments to be performed by ECHA under the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) for technical equivalence, Article 95 inclusion and applications for a minor change of biocidal products. The Biocides Units ensure that the Agency's Biocidal Products Committee and its Working Groups operate in an independent, efficient, transparent, and consistent manner and can deliver high-quality scientific opinions or agreements. They also provide the secretariat of the Coordination Group established under Article 35(1) of the BPR.

As a Scientific Officer on the efficacy of biocides you will work managing dossiers in the Active Substances Approval or Products Union Authorisation processes. You will provide expert input in efficacy assessments for both active substances and biocidal products.

You will interact with a wide range of colleagues at all levels of the Agency, Member State representatives and their experts, Commission, industry and other stakeholders.
