Creation of exposition models on the basis of realistic exposition situations of workers, evaluation of the models on the basis of the models on the basis of present measured values for worker exposition, Research of today’s and possible future use of nano-materials in consumer products, Definition of realistic use scenarios (exposition scenarios) for the use of important consumer products which contain nano-materials, Calculation of the consumers affected from resulting consumer exposition visà- vis nano-materials and estimation of the number.
