WP4 Database on the state-of-the-art of emissions and health end points from consumer products
StartJune 2010
WP LeaderUOWM
WP PartnersUMIL, IDMEC, NRCWE, VITO
ObjectivesTo 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 States
StartJune 2010
WP LeaderIPSOS
WP PartnersANSES, UOWM, VITO
ObjectivesTo 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 testing
StartNovember 2010
WP LeaderNRCWE
WP PartnersVITO, IDMEC, TUM, UOWM
ObjectivesTo 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 assessment
StartNovember 2010
WP LeaderUMIL
WP PartnersUOWM, NRCWE
ObjectivesTo 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 options
StartDecember 2011
WP LeaderIDMEC
WP PartnersUOWM, UMIL
ObjectivesTo 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.
