||One of the most important quantitative outputs from toxicity studies is the identification of the highest exposure level that does not cause adverse effects to human health. This report reviews the criteria that could be used to guide the consistent interpretation of toxicity studies, and in particular the differentiation between adverse and non-adverse effects. Contents: background and scope; definitions and approaches; interpretation of toxicological data; consequences of using the "no observed effect level" (NOEL) and "no observed adverse effect level" (NOAEL) approaches in risk assessment; conclusions, including a proposed set of coherent definitions.
