 "​Exposure models"​ generally refer to the rate of intake of contaminants from media such as air, water, dust and food via ingestion, inhalation and direct contact. But, the actual targets of interest in terms of chemical toxicity are the internal tissues where toxic effects arise. "​Exposure models"​ generally refer to the rate of intake of contaminants from media such as air, water, dust and food via ingestion, inhalation and direct contact.

-In the MERLIN-Expo tool, the exposure concept is extended from the environment to the internal tissues of the human body so that the full exposure chain can be considered in a comprehensive health effects evaluation. Exposure assessment can focus on biota (for environmental risk assessment) or humans (for human health risk assessment).+In the [[http://​merlin-expo.eu/​|MERLIN-Expo tool]], the exposure concept is extended from the environment to the internal tissues of the human body so that the full exposure chain can be considered in a comprehensive health effects evaluation.

They are usually performed parallel and often with a poor connection between them. In general, Environmental Exposure Assessment (EEA) and Human Exposure Assessment (HEA) tend to rely on separately developed data, methods, scenarios and models.
