About LKC – Independent Registration and Development

LKC – Supporting Global Agricultural and Public Health sectors

A family-run business, LKC is located in the heart of Europe near Basel in Switzerland, working with clients around the world. Our founder, Dr David Kane, recognised the need for an independent registration and development service in Europe for the international speciality chemicals industry, setting LKC up in 2001.

For the past 20 years, we have developed long-term partnerships with our clients and excellent relationships with the EU’s regulatory offices. We’ve earned a reputation for providing a professional, high quality technical service. Working with us, you will benefit from:

  • Specialised support for active substances approval and authorisation of plant protection and biocidal products in the EU, Switzerland and the UK
  • A registration and approval success rate of over 95%
  • Our in-depth, technical knowledge of the EU regulatory system – we understand carcinogenic compound classifications, can pin-point data gaps and cut off criteria, and help to avoid pitfalls and unnecessary delays
  • Research and Development experience on projects involving novel active substances, particularly for fungicides and insecticides
  • Being independent, we can work with laboratories to generate and keep track of your data, ensuring reports are robust and reliable for regulatory approval

From its beginnings, LKC swiftly grew into a successful and profitable entity. By 2009, both Matthew and Donna had joined, ensuring the long-term future of the company. Alongside them is a specialist team, each with highly technical and scientific skills, and a vast amount of knowledge within the biochemical industry.

LKC continues to be a committed family business with values to match. It’s not just about getting the results you need. It’s about building valuable, genuine partnerships with our international chemical and biochemical clients.

We focus on scientific and practical solutions to technical and regulatory challenges.

Through helping global chemical companies register and maintain key pest control products in the EU markets, we are responsible for directly reducing the spread of diseases, reduce the devastating impact of pest resistance and improve economies across Europe.

LKC helps clients to ensure that the Global Agricultural and Public Health sectors have an essential tool kit to feed more people, protect lives and safeguard our environments.

LKC UK Ltd and LKC Chem-Regs Ltd are separate and wholly owned legal entities. They enable LKC to offer our clients the capability for UK and EU submissions and notifications on their behalf.
