1 Emissions, Exposure Patterns and Health Effects of Consumer Products in the EU Duration: 1 st June 2010 – 31 st May 2013

2 Emissions, Exposure Patterns and Health Effects of Consumer Products in the EU Associated partners Air Quality Measurements, Environmental Risk and Health, VITO Eddy Goelen, Marianne Stranger, Jeroen Van Deun Department of Engineering and Management of Energy Resources, University of West Macedonia John Bartzis Methods, Research and External Relations, ANSESSalma Elreedy, Sandrine Philippe Chemical-Technical Analysis and Chemical Food Technology, Technische Universität München, TUM Albrecht Friess Indoor Environment Group, National Research Centre for the Working Environment, NRCWE Peder Wolkoff Unit of Advanced Studies on Energy in the Built Environment, Instituto de Engenharia Mecânica, IDMEC Eduardo de Oliveira Fernandes, Gabriela Ventura Silva Dipartimento di Medicina del Lavoro, Università degli Studi di Milano, UMIL Paolo Carrer IPSOS BelgiumRosario Spadaro, Sylvia Vandenbroucke

4 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

5 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

6 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
