The FACET Exposure Tool
The FACET software tool is aimed at assessing dietary exposure of populations of European consumers to chemicals in food and food contact materials
The software contains databases of chemical concentrations for food flavourings and food additives, chemical occurrence data, industry data on retail food packaging composition, and food consumption diaries.
These databases are combined in probabilistic dietary exposure models that estimate exposure in different populations of consumers in the EU.
Following download and installation of the tool (a desktop software), the assessments can be run on the user's computer.
The latest version of the FACET Exposure Tools is downloadable HERE.
The relevant user manual, technical guidance, project final concise reports and worked examples will be available on this site (section "documents and manuals").
