Establishment of a web-based nano-risk governance portal with well-documented and tested tools is one of the key products of the caLIBRAte project. As part of the project, we tested the tools and models available for nanomaterial (NM) risk, exposure and hazard assessment for the input sensitivity. To carry out this task and to implement a feasible and efficient methodological testing approach, information was needed on model input requirements along with data formats. This included technical information on 20 models identified in early stage of the caLIBRAte project. Generation of such information was the first step to implement the sensitivity testing and data gap analysis in caLIBRAte. Finally, eleven NM risk, exposure and hazard assessment models were identified for sensitivity testing.
