EXPOSURE & RISK ASSESSMENT
toXcel has a team of highly experienced scientists capable of detailed exposure and risk assessments. Our staff have successfully evaluated numerous chemical ingredients and consumer products for review by a variety of regulatory agencies, such as the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA), the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), California Environmental Protection Agency (CA EPA), and Health Canada.
Our staff also have extensive experience in conducting dietary risk and exposure analyses, using specialized software such as the Dietary Exposure Evaluation Model (DEEM-FCID) and the Cumulative and Aggregated Risk Evaluation System (CARES). These assessments can be utilized in tolerance petitions or petitions for the exemption from the requirement of a tolerance for active ingredients.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN PROPOSITION 65
The Office of the Attorney General (OAG) of California recently adopted amendments to Proposition 65 to limit the penalty amounts and attorney’s fees that can be collected in civil actions filed by private individuals or groups under California’s Proposition 65. The California Chamber of Commerce was the lead group pushing for the reform. The Chamber spearheaded a coalition of more than 200 industry groups during rule development. However, the Chamber remains concerned that certain aspects of the “reformed” rules will fall short of the intended goals.
