In support of the Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA) of 1996, research is being conducted by the U.S. EPA National Exposure Research Laboratory to develop methods, data, and models for evaluating children's aggregate exposure to pesticides by all relevant pathways. The FQPA requires the EPA to use exposure assessment in the pesticide tolerance setting process. The exposure assessments must consider the aggregate exposures of infants and children from all sources (Food, water, soil, dust, and air) and routes (inhalation, dermal exposure, indirect ingestion, and dietary ingestion). The goal of this document is to provide guidance for generating data that can be used to improve exposure assessments for young children, as required by FQPA. Currently, standard protocols for conducting exposure field studies that provide data for measurement-based exposure assessments do not exist. Likewise, protocols for developing exposure factor data to be used for modeling assessments are not available. Although research on children's exposure to pesticides and other toxic chemicals is being performed within EPA, academia, industry, and other research organizations, protocols that have been developed by individual researchers for specific studies do not always collect on all of the data required for reliable exposure assessments, and the data collected cannot always be interpreted.
