Dr. Bonarius Consult GmbH was founded in August 2018, in parallel to my job as Global Head Regulatory Affairs for Siegfried AG, in order to provide training, coaching and mentoring of Regulatory and R&D professionals.

In October 2019, after a career spanning twenty years’ experience as scientist, consultant and lastly as a global department head, I left Siegfried AG to become fully independent.

I do believe in the importance of networking in improving the regulatory landscape. Throughout my career I have worked in various industry associations and committees such as the International Federation of Animal Health (now AnimalHealth Europe), the European Biocidal Products Forum (EBPF, member of CEFIC) and the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients Committee (APIC, member of CEFIC). In 2014, I founded the Association of Chemists in Industry, section Freiburg ("Verein für Chemiker in der Wirtschaft", VCW, part of the German Chemical Society).

Today, I am an active in several chemical, pharmaceutical and regulatory organisations:

  • The Organisation for Professionals in Regulatory Affairs
  • German Chemical Society
  • Verein für Wirtschaft und Chemie
  • Regulatory MasterMinds
