EFSA first published guidance on dermal absorption back in 2012. This guidance has been reviewed on the basis of new available data provided to EFSA by the European Crop Protection Association (ECPA) and the Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung (BfR), with updated guidance published following a public consultation. Details on experimental design have not been addressed but recommendations specific to performing and interpreting dermal absorption studies with plant protection products (PPP) are given. The main changes are as follows:
The dermal absorption guidance can be found on the EFSA website: http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/efsajournal/pub/4873
Outcome of the public consultation on the draft EFSA guidance on dermal absorption can also be found on the EFSA website: http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/supporting/pub/1250e
