In fact only a minority even hold the potential for acute effects and of these probably only a small proportion will require any action to prevent the possibility of adverse events. Similarly the development of PB-PK methods in dose-response modelling and aggregate exposure estimates will probably affect only a small proportion of the chemical contaminants previously assessed. 3 of this chapter the present approach to characterisation of doseresponse relationships was described. In most cases it is necessary to extrapolate from animal species that are used in testing to humans.

Intake figures tend to follow food consumption patterns although for pork kidney the intake is zero because no lead was detected in it. As expected, when calculated on a per person per week basis children have lower intakes of lead than do adults. 4% Lead intake, ng/person/day Consumers only Per capita Mean 90th Mean 90th percentile percentile 968 1453 0 925 1659 3640 0 1747 141 20 0 161 IC IC IC IC Lead intake, ng/kg bodyweight/day Consumers only Per capita Mean 90th Mean 90th percentile percentile 14 21 0 13 23 51 0 23 2 0 0 2 IC IC IC IC adults.

7 As a result of the adoption of the above directives legislation is now in place to ensure that there is confidence not only in national laboratories but also those of the other Member States. As one of the objectives of the EU is to promote the concept of mutual recognition, this is being achieved in the laboratory area by the adoption of the AMFC directive. The effect of the AMFC Directive is that organisations must consider the following aspects within the laboratory: its organisation, how well it actually carries out analyses, and the methods of analysis used in the laboratory.
