The ECETOC Targeted Risk Assessment (TRA) tool was launched in 2004 and consists of 3 separate models for estimating exposures to workers, consumers and the environment that arise during a series of events (‘exposure scenarios‘).
The TRA Tool has had a major beneficial impact on REACH (Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) since there was no other way chemical safety assessments (CSAs) could be compiled without it. More than 80% of the CSAs submitted in the first two rounds of REACH registrations have been based on the TRA.The current version of the tool is TRAv3.1 which can be freely downloaded from this webpage. In this version, ECETOC has further improved the consumer portion of the model by the inclusion of the ability to account for infrequent uses of consumer products. The changes which have been developed in cooperation with ECHA are also found within version 2.3 of Chesar (Link to Chesar website).
Version 3.1 is available both as an integrated model and a standalone version for the consumer part, and together with updated user guides can now be downloaded from this webpage. A detailed explanation of the rationale for the changes is contained in Technical Report 124: Addendum to ECETOC TR114: Technical Basis for the TRA v3.1 which provides further clarification of how ECETOC has applied ‘transfer factors’ in the TRA’s prediction of oral, dermal and inhalation exposures. These improvements now enable the information contained within developments such as the DUCC Specific Consumer Exposure Determinants (http://www.ducc.eu/Activities.aspx ) to be suitably processed.
The update to version 3.1 was also used as an occasion to include an updated SpERC list and improvements of the functionalities by offering the export and import of single substance datasets.
See 'History' for further information on the history of the tool.
