Dermal absorption: refined BfR template for in vitro calculations

Germany’s Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) has refined the template for calculating dermal absorption for in vitro studies for pesticides. The changes took account of feedback from stakeholders during an info session on EFSA’s Guidance on dermal absorption, held in Parma on 27-28 September 2017. The revised template is now available for users together with a practical example of its use in the supporting information section of the Guidance.
