Abstract: Eight world-wide available exposure factors systems have been selected including the ExpoFacts database that we manage. They include USA, Canada, Australia, China, Japan and Korea in addition to Germany. They are analysed across their commonalities and differences with ultimate objective to identify the potential for harmonisation, interoperability and integration. The cross-analysis is based on 20 criteria that have been grouped into five categories: project management, design & architecture, data content, data quality and data values types & usage. The selected criteria are mainly extracted from the WHO-IPCS harmonisation project on uncertainty and data quality in exposure assessment and then adapted to better fit the purpose of this analysis. The main conclusions and recommendations have resulted from the comparison and the relative analysis.
