Klaus Schneider participated in WHO expert meeting on BMD modelling

Dose-response modelling (or benchmark dose modelling) is a key method for deriving health-based guidance values in a scientifically rigorous manner. Recently, an expert meeting took place in Geneva at WHO headquarters in order to facilitate the update of Chapter 5 (Dose-Response Assessment and Derivation of Health-Based Guidance Values) of the Environmental Health Criteria document 240: “Principles and methods for the risk assessment of chemicals in food”. Klaus Schneider took part as an invited expert. The updated chapter 5 is expected to be published in 2019.
