In January 2018, the guidance document on the use of EFSA PRIMo revision 3 was published in the EFSA Journal. Following feedback from users, the risk assessment tool has been updated, including editorial modifications and corrections of input values used for the calculation of the exposure assessments.
In revision 3.1 of the model the following modifications have been introduced:
An analysis of how the modifications impact the results of the risk assessment was performed by EFSA, comparing the results obtained with PRIMo revision 3.1 and PRIMo revision 3. While for the chronic risk assessment the new revision of PRIMo will not impact on the results, the acute risk assessment differs for a number of commodities.
The current version of the risk assessment model and supporting information is available online at https://efsa.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.2903/sp.efsa.2019.EN-1605
