Regulatory Software Solutions

Estimating the environmental exposure for the registration process of pesticides requires considerable time to be invested in creating complex model simulations and workflows.
knoell has developed efam (environmental fate automated modelling) in order to automate and optimise these exposure assessments.
efam, our newly developed software product, bundles and fully automates the parametrisation and model simulations on high-performance servers.
As regulatory software, efam optimises and parametrises time-consuming workflows and processes, extracts customised data for dossiers and reports and reduces efforts required for quality control.

Added value for you when working with us

Thanks to our many years of experience and our well-coordinated team of IT specialists, scientists and regulatory affairs managers, we understand your requirements and can implement them individually in close coordination with you.

We know your market, your challenges and your needs. We can support you in organising your data structures and processes and help you to increase the efficiency and quality of your day-to-day work and minimise errors. Our work will also reduce the effort you have to invest in quality assurance. We will automate recurring tasks and processes for you and also speed up the way your reports and dossiers are created. We develop .NET-based tools and customised Microsoft Office add-ins (C#) based on your requirements. We comply with the IEEE industry standard in order to ensure standardised software specification and development. Once the software is up and running, we will take care of maintenance, any necessary customisations and secure archiving.


efam – Environmental Fate Automated Modelling
