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 cleaning products are examples fact sheets which have been published already. This fact sheet covers the use of pest control products by consumers. In the factsheet eight product categories are described, including sprays, dusting powders, repellents, electrical evaporators and baits. To assess exposure of compounds in the pest control products default values for all eight product categories have been determined.
