Advanced model for occupational chemical exposure assessment

Project number: F 1932 Institution: TNO, The Netherlands; Co-operation Partner: Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) Status: Completed Project

Description:

Currently an appropriate tier 2 model to estimate occupational exposure is lacking to assess chemical substances acc. to EC regulation 1907/2007 (REACH). In an European co-operation a new framework based on a mechanistic model and an empirical part with information from an exposure database will be developped. Both parts are to be combined using a Bayesian learning process to produce exposure distributions which reflect level and uncertainty of exposure.
