This Highlights document was developed to provide a brief overview of the contents of the Child-Specific Exposure Factors Handbook and to facilitate access to its exposure factors recommendations. As such, it contains a subset of the information provided in the complete Handbook. This Highlights document is a product of the EPAs Exposure Factors Program. NCEA established the Exposure Factors Program to develop tools and databases that improve the scientific basis of exposure and risk assessment by (1) identifying exposure factors needs in consultation with clients, and exploring ways for filling data gaps; (2) compiling existing data on exposure factors needed for assessing exposures/risks; and (3) assisting clients in the use of exposure factors data. These activities are supported by and respond to the needs of the various EPA program offices.
