CEPST™ Highlights

Key Features in Developing the Lifeline Chemical Exposure Priority Setting Tool™ (CEPST™)

  • Appropriate to large number of widely varying substances
  • Yields highest plausible exposure (or risk) measures for substances in products scenarios or environmental media
  • Requires a low effort per chemical
  • Can be consistently applied
  • Uses substance-specific and user-specific data sets to perform the exposure estimates
  • Identifies Sentinel Products matched to scenarios and scenario-specific algorithms predictions of dermal, oral and inhalation exposure
  • Uses open methodology, disclosure of all assumptions and algorithms and can be based on publicly available data
  • Provides quantitative estimates of highest plausible exposures sorted separately by route, any age grouping or duration (e.g., acute, sub-chronic and chronic).
