Exposure Data: RIFM’s Human Health Safety Assessment - Dr. Anne Marie Api

Expert Models for Decision Makers TM - Crème Staff

Understanding the potential for exposure to a material is essential for completing a safety evaluation. To improve how RIFM carries out Safety Evaluations on fragrance materials, RIFM in collaboration with member companies and an external resource, Creme Global, is developing an aggregate exposure model. This model will provide improved calculation of total systemic consumer exposure to fragrance materials.

The webinar is designed for scientific and regulatory staff of any company involved in the preparation of fragrances for consumer products. It has two purposes:

First, it will provide a brief introduction to the development of a probabilistic aggregate exposure model which takes into account multiple routes of exposure to a fragrance material.

Second, it will review the information that is required to support development of a robust model. During the webinar, RIFM staff will review a new survey worksheet RIFM will use to gather exposure data to be used in development of the model.

During 2013, RIFM will request exposure data for large numbers of fragrance materials. The first request for exposure data will be on 250 fragrance ingredients but throughout the year, RIFM will continue to request data on all the fragrance materials on the IFRA Transparency List.

The information must be provided only from fragrance compounders for marketed fragrance mixtures only.

Part 2 of Exposure Data and the New RIFM Aggregate Model for Fragrance Materials will take place in April 2013
The second webinar will give detailed instruction on using the model.

The model will only be available to RIFM Members.

Creme Global is a well-established partner to Industry for modeling exposure to cosmetics and foods, whose methodology is accepted by regulators. Creme’s software for food safety analysis is used by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
