Emissions, Exposure Patterns and Health Effects of Consumer Products in the EU
EPHECT focus
WHAT?
consumer products
known to be potential sources of hazardous and other health relevant air
pollutants in dwellings; exposure related to use scenario
AIM?
to identify and quantify
a set of key indoor air polluants and emerging pollutans emitted by
consumer product classes, whilst simulating European use conditions
WHICH POLLUTANTS?
gaseous and particulate emissions, sec. reactions and degradations of coated surf.
(1) compounds prioritised by relev. inter. concerted actions or organisations
(2) compounds reported as pot. hazardous and occurring in the product
BUMAC
Emissions, Exposure Patterns and Health Effects of Consumer Products in the EU
EPHECT strategy (1)
Database of the state-of-the-art on consumer product emissions
product compositions, emission test protocols, emissions, sec.reactions,
exposure, health end points
Selection of 15 product classes, which
(1) are used in households
(2) cause an exposure related to the use
(3) emit key or emerging pollutants
(4) have a considerable indicative household use frequency
(5) mainly cause inhalation exposure
(6) cause a health end point
Emissions, Exposure Patterns and Health Effects of Consumer Products in the EU
EPHECT strategy (2)
Market study on the 15 product classes
on use, use pattern, habits and attitudes of EU consumers
Laboratory testing
to quantify product emissions, focusing on research gaps
Exposure and health risk assessment models
applying data on use and use patterns + quantified product emissions
Completion of BUMAC
Risk management guidance
policy options, risk reduction strategies
