The Exposure Assessment Group of EPA's Office of Research and Development has three main functions: (1) to conduct exposure assessments; (2) to review assessments and related documents; and (3) to develop guidelines for Agency exposure assessments. These exposure assessments are critical to the evaluation of the public health risks that are presented by toxic substances. The activities under each of these three functions are supported by and respond to the needs of the various EPA program offices. In relation to the third function, the Exposure Assessment Group conducts projects for the purpose of developing or refining techniques used in exposure assessments.
