Abstract: GExFRAME is a web-based, global framework that houses databases and modeling tools for assessing exposures to consumer products in the European Union (EU) and the United States (US). The aim of developing this framework is to establish a user-friendly and transparent system that would allow to users to conduct both lower tier screening level assessments and higher tier probabilistic Monte Carlo assessments for further use by the REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) legislation and the General Product Safety Directive (GPSD, 2001/95/EC) in EU. In this paper five typical scenarios of chemicals released indoors have been simulated (either deterministically or probabilistically) demonstrating the potential of GExFRAME in treating exposure conditions that match everyday real-life scenarios of consumers.
