This report provides a set of early-life stage age groups for U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA, or the Agency) scientists to consider when assessing children's exposure to environmental contaminants and the resultant potential dose. These recommended age groups are based on current understanding of differences in behavior and physiology that may impact exposures in children. A consistent set of early-life age groups, supported by an underlying scientific rationale, is expected to improve Agency exposure and risk assessments for children by increasing the consistency and comparability of risk assessments across the Agency, improving accuracy and transparency in assessments for those cases where current practice might too broadly combine behaviorally and physiologically disparate age groups, and fostering a consistent approach to future exposure surveys and monitoring efforts to generate improved exposure factors for children.
