Tools for risk assessment


Scientific evaluations require data analysis. There are some tools that facilitate processing of information.

Risk asesssment tools:

Rapid Assessment of Contaminant Exposure (RACE)

The EFSA RACE tool provides estimates of different population groups’ acute and chronic exposure to chemical contaminants from single foods and compares the result to the health-based guidance value or other relevant toxicological reference points.
