WP4 Database on the state-of-the-art of emissions and health end points from consumer productsStartJune 2010WP LeaderUOWMWP PartnersUMIL, IDMEC, NRCWE, VITOObjectivesTo create the fundaments for a European database , named BUMAC (Consumer products), on the state-of-the-art of consumer product emissions and health end points. To identify health and emission relevant consumer product classes for further research.
WP5 Indoor use and use pattern of consumer products in EU Member StatesStartJune 2010WP LeaderIPSOSWP PartnersANSES, UOWM, VITOObjectivesTo assess the European consumption and use habits of 15 selected consumer product classes. To translate this information to make it applicable as input for simulated real life emission testing, exposure and risk assessment.
WP6 Quantification of product emissions by laboratory testingStartNovember 2010WP LeaderNRCWEWP PartnersVITO, IDMEC, TUM, UOWMObjectivesTo study research gaps beyond the state-of-the-art for the completion of BUMAC with missing emission rates, by quantifying emissions of selected consumer products in laboratory experiments, simulating realistic household use conditions.
WP7 Exposure and health risk assessmentStartNovember 2010WP LeaderUMILWP PartnersUOWM, NRCWEObjectivesTo assess the health risk, based on exposure assessment to key and emerging indoor air pollutants from selected consumer product classes.
WP8 Risk management guidance and policy optionsStartDecember 2011WP LeaderIDMECWP PartnersUOWM, UMILObjectivesTo formulate an efficient risk management guidance for users of consumer products and to provide recommendations for policy-makers in order to obtain a healthier indoor environment.
