Understanding and estimating exposures due to product use and handling is becoming more critical as regulations evolve, public demands for safe products increases, and a thorough understanding of risk throughout a product’s lifecycle is becoming increasingly important as REACH-like regulations spread across the globe.
This workshop will convince product stewards that a working knowledge of models and modeling is key to improving this understanding to meet customer and regulatory demands. It will cover key drivers that prompt exposure modeling, basic features, and characterization of models, and will describe common model inputs and outputs.
Attendees will be better prepared to evaluate models for model selection and better positioned to interpret results for informed decision-making. A role-playing case study will be used to demonstrate the model selection and data collection process, followed by a review of existing presentations and tools to assist product stewards in continuing their journey toward modeling proficiency.
At the end of this workshop, attendees will gain practical insights on how to:
- Understand how models are useful to inform product stewardship decisions
- Explain basic features and characteristics of exposure models
- Get comfortable with using product exposure models
