Indoor Air Quality
The BAMA/FEA Indoor Air Model is a simple yet powerful tool independently validated by experts from BRE (UK) actively involved in writing international standards for the measurement and control of indoor air pollutants. They concluded that the Model "can be used to predict the concentration of aerosol components within a room following a suitable time interval after spraying".
The tool can rapidly generate predicted concentrations for a wide range of aerosol products and is available free of charge on BAMA website.
The Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP) of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) welcomed the BAMA/FEA Indoor Air Model and will consider including it in the GlobalExpoFrame System (GExFrame), a user-friendly web-based software system that houses scientific data and models, particularly those relevant to estimating consumer products' exposures to chemicals.
FEA is in discussion with The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) to convert the BAMA/FEA Indoor Air Model as a plug-in of Chesar, the CHEmical Safety Assessment and Reporting tool. Chesar itself is a plug-in to IUCLID 5.3 which aims to help companies to carry out their Chemical Safety Assessments (CSA) and prepare their Chemical Safety Reports (CSR) under the REACH Regulation.
