The ExpoFacts database contains non-chemical exposure factors, data and information which are relevant to exposure and risk assessment of chemicals, performed in the context of several sectorial EU regulations on environment and public health. It also contains data and information on population data covering all EU Member States plus Iceland, Norway and Switzerland (31 countries in total) with extensive links and references. The ExpoFacts related data and information have been compiled into an online database from over 120 sources, e.g., databases, information systems of national institutes and international organisations, scientific articles, reports and surveys.

Eight world-wide available exposure factors systems have been selected including the ExpoFacts database that we manage. They include USA, Canada, Australia, China, Japan and Korea in addition to Germany. They are analysed across their commonalities and differences with ultimate objective to identify the potential for harmonisation, interoperability and integration.
The cross-analysis is based on 20 criteria that have been grouped into five categories: project management, design & architecture, data content, data quality and data values types & usage. The selected criteria are mainly extracted from the WHO-IPCS harmonisation project on uncertainty and data quality in exposure assessment and then adapted to better fit the purpose of this analysis. The main conclusions and recommendations have resulted from the comparison and the relative analysis.
