HERA Comments
 HERA is determined to avoid any duplication of effort and to discourage effort for the sake of marginal improvements. However, HERA believes that HERA Risk Assessments should be carried out where significant additional risk information can be obtained, and where a refinement of the existing assessments would yield new or significantly different conclusions in particular for the detergent use scenario.

This document refers to the information in the EU Risk Assessment which covers hydrogen peroxide use in the household cleaning products which are within the scope of HERA. It also contains additional, recent exposure information which broadly supports the figures provided there.
