Synopsis

In this fact sheet general information is presented necessary to calculate exposure of consumers to compounds in consumer products. Calculations are carried out with the computer program ConsExpo (Consumer Exposure). To calculate the exposure information is gathered about groups containing similar products like: paint, pest control products, cosmetics and cleaning products. The information is described in a fact sheet. This fact sheet covers information about the way human exposure is calculated with the values from the fact sheets. Furthermore in this fact sheet information is documented, which is important for several groups of consumer products, such as: - the volume and surface area of rooms in Dutch dwellings, - the air-change rate in various rooms in dwellings, - the total body surface and surface of body parts of men and women, adults and children. This fact sheet contributes considerable to a fast, transparent and standardized exposure assessment of consumer products.
