Generic exposure tools such as ECETOC TRA, MEASE, EMKG-EXPO-TOOL, STOFFENMANAGER and RISKOFDERM are currently widely used for chemical safety assessments under REACH. The German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, (BAuA) has therefore initiated and sponsored a comprehensive Evaluation of the Tier 1 Exposure Assessment Models (ETEAM). Carried out by the Institute of Occupational Medicine (IOM Edinburgh) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Toxicology (ITEM Hannover) the ETEAM project was intended to compare and contrast the different REACH Tier 1 exposure assessment models in terms of their validity, scope of application, functionality and user-friendliness. The ETEAM conference will give a comprehensive overview of the study results and will provide guidance for model users, industry and regulators on the range of applicability of models across different exposure situations. Hence the ETEAM conference is aimed at all registrants, downstream users, consultants, authorities and researchers who are involved in the assessment of occupational exposure under the REACH regulation.
