Exposure to compounds in consumer products can be assessed using the computer program ConsExpo (Consumer Exposure). Given the huge number of consumer products, it is not possible to calculate the exposure for each separate product, so a limited number of groups containing similar products are defined. The information for each group of products is described in a fact sheet. Paint, cosmetics, children's toys and pest control products are examples of fact sheets which have been published already. This fact sheet covers the use of disinfectant products by consumers. In the fact sheet nine product categories are described, including algae, green deposit removers, black mould removers, swimming pool disinfectants, veterinary hygiene biocidal products and disinfectants for drinking water, waterbeds, chemical toilets and for rubbish bins. To assess exposure of compounds in the disinfectant products default values for all product categories have been determined.
