Chemical Risk Assessment

  • Overview
  • Why Work With NSF

Human health risk assessments enable public health protection as well as more informed risk management decisions and communications. NSF provides a wide variety of risk assessment capabilities. We can:

  • Identify and evaluate relevant scientific literature
  • Document data gaps and make recommendations for resolution
  • Characterize risk with quantitative dose- and exposure-response modeling
  • Derive acceptable chemical-specific and/or chemical class-specific exposures
  • Publish results in peer-reviewed scientific journals

Why Work With NSF

NSF is an expert in the field, providing toxicology and chemical risk assessment services to evaluate ingredients, materials and products for nearly 30 years. NSF toxicologists have prepared more than 170 externally peer-reviewed chemical risk assessments and have populated a wide internal database of risk-based action levels for roughly 2,000 chemical contaminants.

Our toxicologists employ chemical hazard, exposure and risk assessment methodologies for evaluating the safety of food ingredients, drinking water products, food contact materials, dietary supplement ingredients/products and cosmetic and personal care products, and in support of safer chemistry and sustainability program initiatives.
