How can laboratory test results of chemical exposure data differ from the actual field sites?
The processes and methods for conducting environmental and ecological assessments are becoming increasingly complex, both in terms of estimating potential exposures and in utilizing data generated on different types of non-target organisms including mammals, birds, fish, aquatic and terrestrial invertebrates, soil micro- and macro-organisms, and aquatic and terrestrial plants.
We help our clients understand the impacts from chemical toxicity and exposure rates, including their chemical processes and interactions in the environment. Exponent conducts the modeling utilized by U.S. and EU regulatory agencies and delivers clients a thorough, up-front understanding of how agencies will evaluate a chemical. Additionally, we provide feedback and recommendations if mitigation measures are needed.
Our multidisciplinary teams conduct higher-tier environmental evaluations, such as using the full toxicology data sets, rather than the limited use and extrapolations of toxicity data that are typically used by regulators in a screening-level assessment. This method provides clients with more detailed, realistic estimates of exposure, and often results in a very different picture of potential risk than what is provided by the standard regulatory screening-level assessment.
