Consumer Exposure

B5-CERTH: Realistic estimation of exposure to substances from multiple sources (TAGS)

Exposure to chemical agents originates either from environmental contamination (air, water), or from consumer products (food contact materials, construction materials, cosmetics, clothes, etc.) through multiple routes, namely inhalation, ingestion and dermal contact. Aggregate exposure, i.e. the quantitative exposure assessment to […]

B4-THL: Integrated exposure for risk assessment in indoor environments (INTERA)

Exposure to indoor air contaminants is one of the major sources of exposure to environmental health stressors, especially given that people spend the majority of their time indoors. Indoor air quality is determined by the ability of outdoor source pollutants […]

C1.6: Possibilities and capabilities of 3D-body-scanning systems for the purpose of risk assessment.

The result of this study shows that a vast pool of data is available from the many kinds of measurement surveys that have been carried out using 3D body scanner technology. However, to evaluate the data or to derive the […]

D1.1-NOFE: Biomarkers of Exposure – Trends and Key Developments

The aim of the study was to evaluate existing biomarkers of exposure to xenobiotics and analytical methods from the point of view of the possibility of practical use for assessing and managing occupational and environmental health risk. The study encompassed […]

B2.3-IOM: Variability and Uncertainty in Chemical Exposures for Regulatory Risk Assessment

The aim of this project is to investigate how the variability and uncertainty of occupational inhalation exposure information may be better incorporated into the European regulatory risk assessment process. In this proposal, we have chosen to focus specifically on inhalation […]

EEM1-ASTRA: Identification and Evaluation of Emission Databases in Europe

Estimating how much of a particular chemical is released to the environment is key to assessing likely levels of exposure and risk to humans and the environment. Such estimates are often based on very general information due to a lack […]

A3.1: Establishment and Management of a Research Inventory on the Indoor Environment (IERIE)

Substantial research has been underway for many years on the health effects of pollutants in domestic and commercial buildings. This project has developed a searchable database (termed IERIE) of recent, current and planned indoor environment research activities across Europe. Existing […]

A3.3: The EXPOLIS-Index Study, Human Exposure Patterns for Health Risk Assessment:Indoor Determinants of Personal Exposures in the European Expolis Population in Athens, Basel, Grenoble, Milan, Helsinki, Oxford And Praha

Exposure assessment plays a key role in the risk assessment procedure. In order to quantify the associated risk and health impact of a possible pollutant, it is necessary to obtain a description of the full-range of exposure distribution. This project […]

C1.3: Establish a Database of a Number of Parameters Sufficient Relevant for Reliable Prediction of European Consumer Exposures

Many chemicals are used daily in the home, in diverse end-uses such as cleaning, renovating and caring for houseplants. Product labels give advice on safe use, but there is scope to improve understanding of potential risks. One approach is to […]

C1.5: European Sourcebook of Information Describing Human Exposures to Chemicals in the Environment (ExpoFacts)

European exposure factor data have been collected in one centrally available, freely accessible site on the Internet: the ExpoFacts database. The process of compiling the database required locating the exposure factor data and evaluating its general applicability and public availability. […]
