Lara A. Hall is a staff Scientist at The Acta Group (Acta®) and Registered Quality Assurance Professional in Good Laboratory Practices (RQAP-GLP) with over a decade of experience in environmental research, study monitoring, and international regulatory support. Ms. Hall assists clients in placing and monitoring studies to assist with new chemicals, pesticides, biocides, and endocrine disruptor testing programs (domestic and international); developing testing plans for chemicals that are subject to regulatory approval; and assessing studies for conformance with testing guidelines, data compensation, and regulatory and GLP requirements.

A passion for aquatic ecology born during undergraduate field work with the Virginia Tech Department of Biology's "Stream Team" has led Ms. Hall through a distinguished career, including positions at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Environmental Sciences Division; the Stroud Water Research Center, where she led field research and was responsible for data management and quality assurance (QA) and control; and most recently as senior scientist and QA auditor at a toxicology consulting firm where she monitored and quality assured ecotoxicology, environmental fate, physical-chemical properties, product chemistry, and analytical method validation studies from protocol development through final reporting.

Representative Engagements:

  • Assisted manufacturers of various active chemical substances, additives, and intermediates, and product formulators develop testing strategies and data in support of registrations in the U.S. and Europe.
  • Assisted in the preparation of REACH registration dossiers, including study evaluations and response to inquiries about testing and analytical challenges with substances of Unknown or Variable compositions, Complex reaction products and Biological materials (UVCB).
  • Assessed studies for compliance with established testing guidelines and GLP Standards to ensure regulatory acceptance.
