ECFIA Literature Database

This database presents details of papers published since 2001 that are considered to be directly or indirectly relevant to the hazard and risk assessment of HTIW. It is based on quarterly compilations of published literature, commissioned by ECFIA, being generated by IEH Consulting Ltd (previously by the Institute of Environment and Health at Cranfield University) under the direction of ECFIA’s consultant toxicologist, Professor Paul Harrison.

Decisions on the selection of appropriate papers - based on title, key words and abstract content - are made entirely by IEH Consulting scientists and are based on the paper’s relevance and the considered likely interests of ECFIA and its members.

Where a document – either the full paper or its abstract – is available online, an internet hyperlink is provided. In the case that an abstract is not available online, a summary of the paper prepared by IEH Consulting scientists is provided via a link on the database. These summaries are protected by copyright.
