RIVM Report 612810004
In order to provide default values for the exposure assessment of consumer products, the author categorized consumer products into a limited number of categories and made an inventory to available data. To make this categorization and the data available for users and computer applications, a database is necessary. The structure and contents of this consumer product defaults database are described by a data model. The data model will be used to set up a relational database containing the defaults. The central entity in the model is the product. The product is linked to contact, exposure and uptake categories directly, if specific data are available, and indirectly via the product category, if defaults are needed. The product is also linked to a number of entities containing further information, such as its composition, its producer and literature references.
