ConsExpo Web version 1.0.2 was released on January 30, 2018. This web-based risk assessment tool is intended principally for the assessment of risk to consumers from biocides, but can be applied to other groups such as professional users. The updated model permits the calculation of a peak exposure for inhalation, and also allows the selection of default body weight and inhalation rate parameters.
The updated version of ConsExpo Web can be accessed online on the RIVM website (link).
Additionally, the Cleaning Products Fact Sheet has been updated, which describes default values that are useful for estimating exposure to substances in a cleaning product, such as for duration and frequency of product use and the used amount. It contains information on the consumer use of laundry detergents, dishwashing detergents, all-purpose cleaners, abrasives, bathroom cleaners, floor, carpet and furniture cleaners and other cleaning products.
ConsExpo is developed by RIVM for the Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority and the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport since 1993. ConsExpo Web is realised by RIVM in collaboration with the counterpart institutes ANSES (France), BfR (Germany), FOPH (Switzerland) and Health Canada
