On a daily basis we are exposed to a mixture of multiple chemicals via food intake, inhalation and dermal contact. The risk to human health that may result from this, depends on how the effects of different chemicals in the mixture combine, and whether there is any synergism or antagonism between them. The number of different combinations of chemicals in mixtures is infinite and an efficient test strategy for mixtures is lacking. Furthermore, there is a societal need to reduce animal testing, which is the current practice in safety testing of chemicals.
The EuroMix project will deliver a mixture test strategy and test instruments using novel techniques. The tests will result in data needed for refining future risk assessment of mixtures relevant to different stakeholders. Ultimately, this will provide information for future risk management decisions on the safety of chemicals in mixtures to be taken by the European Commission and the Codex Alimentarius.
More information on the EuroMix concepts and tools can be found in this presentation.
Therefore, we would like to hear your opinion on the tools and concepts under investigation within EuroMixa and are inviting you to participate in our stakeholder survey.
Seventeen questions have been selected to evaluate our concepts and tools acceptance and understandability.
