Summary:
Human health risk assessment is a way of assessing the potential impact of a hazard on the health of a person. The five general steps in the human health risk assessment process are: type of issue, hazard, dose-response relationship, exposure and type of risk assessments. Dermal absorption can be an important pathway of exposure and is therefore required for the Human Risk Assessment.
Through this presentation, we will help you to understand the regulatory requirements of the dermal absorption studies, how to conduct them from a practical point, and how to interpret the data according to the EFSA Journal 2017; 15(6):4873.
