The exposure assessment to chemical agents may be worked out by "preliminary evaluation" on documentary examination to "instrumental measurements" through "algorithms application" or "screening measurements"; in the last years the need of dermal exposure assessment has increased. The application of the procedures has highlighted the need to distinguish between small and great plants, production processes, etc. and to "interpret" the rules. The paper, through the critical examination of the difficulties observed in these years of application of the risk assessment procedures, suggests some reflections upon the best management of the process of exposure assessment to chemical agents: from the preliminary evaluation to the instrumental measurements.
