BARBARA LOSEY

Barbara Losey has been a Senior Executive Consultant with RegNet for the past 9 years, providing association management services, legislative and regulatory advocacy, technical and strategic support to industry consortia and clients in the chemical and allied industries. She has over 25 years of chemical industry experience. Prior to consulting, she worked for Rhodia Inc. (formerly Rhone-Poulenc Inc.) for 17 years where she spent over 10 years managing regulatory, governmental and public affairs for compounds impacted by cutting edge science and complex policy issues. She has a strong multi-disciplinary technical background with experience managing mammalian and ecotoxicology research; environmental fate, wastewater treatment, analytical chemistry projects; and human safety and environmental risk assessments.

Ms. Losey has extensive experience working on issues impacted by emerging science and evolving public policy as well as on water-related regulatory and policy issues. She has managed issues affecting chemicals labeled as "endocrine disruptors" for over 15 years and has been actively dealing with microconstituents found in water since that issue began to escalate more than 8 years ago. She was recently invited by the International Joint Commission to participate in an expert consultation on science and policy issues related to emerging contaminants of concern in water.

In support of clients faced with these types of issues, she provides technical project management and communication and advocacy support services including: communication strategy development, outreach programs and crisis communication. She writes and edits technical papers and trade press articles. She also speaks at executive and scientific conferences and acts as media spokesperson. She is highly experienced in the development and implementation of regulatory and legislative strategies for industry consortia. She routinely drafts regulatory comments and position papers, testifies at legislative hearings and represents industry groups in meetings with international, federal, state and local authorities.

Barbara serves as the Deputy Director of the Alkylphenols & Ethoxylates Research Council and Coordinator of the Inter-Industry Network on Microconstituents in Water.

Barbara holds a Bachelors degree in Molecular Biology from Douglass College at Rutgers University.
