Human Health Risk Assessment under the Biocidal Products Regulation (EU) No. 528/2012
The webinar provides a more detailed understanding of the toxicological data required for the regulation of biocidal products, and goes through the background and fundamentals of human health risk assessment under the BPR, including:
– introduction to risk assessment, hazard versus risk
– toxicological data requirements for biocidal products (skin irritation/corrosion, eye irritation, skin sensitisation, respiratory sensitisation, acute toxicity)
– use of CLP classification based on individual components
– dermal absorption
– hazard identification
– hazard characterisation, dose response relationship
– exposure calculation
– case study – worked example of a human health risk assessment for PT18
– sources of guidance
– models available
– primary (direct) versus secondary (indirect) exposure
– exposure paths
– exposure scenarios, combined scenarios
– risk characterisation
– tiered approach to risk assessment
– considerations for biocidal product families
To ensure the most effective training with optimal involvement from the attendees, and encourage attendees to ask questions during the training, places are strictly limited to 30 delegates per webinar.
All registrants to the training webinar will receive a copy of all slides and access to a recording of the webinars for your personal review.
