Michael S. Wenk, M.S., a Senior Regulatory Consultant with Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®), has managed global regulatory affairs and product stewardship divisions at Fortune 500 chemical and chemical product companies for over 20 years. He is an internationally-recognized expert in chemical registration and regulation in Central and South America, and the Middle East. Mr. Wenk possesses an exceptionally broad understanding of international chemical regulatory programs, as well as a nuanced understanding of corporate operations and business procedures, acumen he deploys to assist clients in achieving global regulatory compliance and business success in a competitive marketplace.
Mr. Wenk offers clients particular expertise in categories including food contact substances, biocides and pesticides, fertilizers, oil and mining chemicals, and pulp and paper products; in regulatory programs including the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), and the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA), among others; and in regulatory due diligence for chemical companies involved in mergers and acquisitions.
Throughout his career in regulatory affairs and product stewardship, Mr. Wenk has developed direct regulatory authority contacts in almost 100 countries; his intuitive knowledge of the regulatory and cultural characteristics of each region is a powerful asset for clients, especially in Central and South America and the Middle East where regulatory compliance requirements can seem far from clear-cut. In these markets and throughout the global regulatory landscape, Mr. Wenk has demonstrated an ability to identify key regulatory issues, develop cost-benefit analyses for instances where multiple registration and regulation options exist, recommend the most viable path forward, and negotiate with national authorities to manage effectively product registrations.
