Description:

A dermal and non-dietary ingestion exposure workshop was sponsored by U.S. EPA's National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL) on September 17,1998. The purpose of this workshop was to gather information on the state-of-the-art in measuring and assessing children's exposures to pesticides via dermal contact with contaminated surfaces and objects as well as by non-dietary ingestion. Although the NERL human exposure research program covers exposure from source to dose, this workshop focused on characterizing concentrations of pesticides in the exposure media (on surface/object) and on quantifying the transfer of contaminants to the skin surface or mouth. The following report discusses the focus of the dermal exposure workshop, summarizes the workshop discussions and identifies research priorities based on a review of the literature, workshop discussions, and expert input.
