Dianne Green is a Principal Global Product Stewardship and Regulatory Affairs Consultant based in Ohio with more than 30 years of experience focused on chemical and product risk assessment, regulatory compliance, merger and acquisition due diligence, and hazard communication.
She offers extensive experience with the EU Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and Classification, Labeling and Packaging (CLP) Regulations and the UN Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). She has led many REACH registrations and GHS classifications of hundreds of chemicals and mixtures.
As a project manager, Dianne directed complex international technical and multistakeholder programs, several with more than $500,000 each in revenue. For over a decade, Dianne served in global product stewardship roles at The Procter & Gamble Company. During subsequent consulting positions, Dianne led programs in GHS classification and SDS authoring, as well as global raw-material, product, and supply-chain compliance and risk due diligence. Multinational clients turn to her to support their continued use of difficult yet essential compounds; in the course of this work, she often handles multiple applications simultaneously, meets stringent deadlines, addresses agency questions, and strives to identify common-sense and innovative solutions.
Using read-across, weight-of-evidence, and quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) approaches, Dianne prepares scientifically sound GHS classifications and also conducts scientific and regulatory reviews of complicated chemical classifications and helps clients to understand the strategy, process, and outcome.
A skilled communicator, Dianne has led external and client-specific workshops and worker training programs on GHS-related issues and has managed consortia related to EU REACH compliance. In service to her field, she has published and presented on topics including compliance, toxicity, and life-cycle analysis.
