TR 140 – Systematic review of published studies of ECETOC TRA Worker exposure predictions

In a Nutshell

A task force from the Centre for chemical safety assessment (ECETOC) has reviewed external performance studies of its Targeted Risk Assessment tool dealing with exposure in the workplace. The task force review identified several gaps in the external studies, as well as variable quality of data, but concluded that the tool remains suitable for estimating inhalation exposure when preparing REACH dossiers for chemical substances.
