We have a simple aspiration, to provide the highest standard of chemical hazard and risk assessments across the broadest range of industries and government organisations. We aim to help our clients cope with the complex and ever changing regulations framed to protect human health, and we endeavour to do this in a way that meets their often challenging time and budgetary constraints. Perhaps our greatest strength is our level of experience, combined with a commitment to continuous education that is second to none. We doubt there is a more experienced and knowledgeable group of toxicologists working together in our field of expertise, in Europe. This, allied to the highest standards of customer service is why we believe, unequivocally, that we should be your partner of choice when your needs relate to any aspect of chemical toxicology. In summary, we are a business run by toxicologists, with a very simple philosophy: we will provide high quality and widely recognised expertise in chemical toxicology hazard and risk, and respected advice on the health effects of chemicals.


Privacy and Cybersecurity

  • Privacy of our team and our clients, as well as cybersecurity, are two things we take very seriously. Our Data Privacy Notice and our Cookie Policy have both been updated by our legal team, in conjunction with our Privacy Lead, Ashleigh, to ensure that we are up-to-date not only on our GDPR obligations, but our general security for our clients’ data. You can also view and manage cookies obtained by us, on your own Cookie Dashboard section of our website.


Our office

  • We pride ourselves on having a fantastic internal training programme – from graduates to Principal Toxicologists, everyone participates, learns and leads group discussions. We attend the most appropriate and useful conferences and seminars all around the world (find out where we are next!) and bring the knowledge back to the rest of the group
  • Our knowledge pool has been growing for over 50 years – we have a great mix of chemists and biologists, all with different backgrounds who work side-by-side in the same office every day


Carbon off-setting

  • Bibra are proudly a carbon-neutral company. We offset our carbon usage (from conference and client travel, to each team members commute, to electricity powering our office) by donating to schemese via Carbon Footprint.  We currently donate to two schemes; one of which plants trees in the UK, and the other is a Certified Emission Reduction scheme which assists development of Wind Energy, Small Hydro Power, Efficient Cookstoves and Biomass. We wanted to do a little more than we felt was morally required of us, so a team decision was made to double the necessary contribution, to at least do our little bit to help ensure our planet is protected for future generations


Our local community and our green promise

  • Wherever possible we buy from, and use, local trade (IT support, solicitors, locksmiths, food etc)
  • 40% of our team cycle to and from work every day
  • Our letterhead paper, compliment slips and business cards are all printed on recycled paper – plus we buy recycled printer paper, and we make sure to keep a scrap pile in each office to reuse for non-confidential printing
  • All surplus confidential papers are shredded and then recycled
  • We try to be as energy efficient in the office as possible – switching off plugs at the sockets, and installing sensor lights and switches


Our charity work

  • As a company, we collect Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers and donate them to Shooting Star Chase, a children’s hospice charity in Guildford, who support families across London, Surrey and Sussex (including several families close to our office!). In lieu of Christmas cards we send an email to our clients and friends, and donate the money we would have spent on cards, to charity
  • One of our Principal Toxicologists, Tanya Diver, took on a 50k walk (and bake sale, too!) in aid of the Children’s Tadworth Trust
  • One of our Directors, Anne Edwards, is a participant in the very important UK Biobank, which is a national and international health resource; the focus of which is to gain as much information as possible about human health, across an entire spectrum of volunteers. UK Biobank aims to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of serious and life-threatening illnesses
  • Our Commercial Director, Ashleigh Ace, is a proud Ambassador for Shooting Star Chase (attending events and giving speeches to raise awareness) and volunteers her time in the hospices on evenings and weekends
  • We are proud supporters of Look Good Feel Better, the only international cancer support charity that helps women and teenagers manage the visible side effects of cancer treatment


Expertise. Knowledge. Integrity.
