• Exposure assessments are a key part of the TSCA and are used to determine everything from worker exposure during manufacturing to the overall environmental impact a chemical will have. The EPA prefers to assess this from concrete, measured data, but when there are gaps in the data it will generally rely on predictive models to complete the picture. These include both screening levels–resulting in simplified, protective assessments–and higher tier tools that provide a more detailed, realistic prediction. You can find out more about how the EPA uses predictive models to assess risk here.
