1996) used computer simulations to obtain the overall product of uncertainty factors required to achieve selected levels of confidence. They indicated that dividing the NOAEL from a chronic exposure study in animals by the product of default values of 10 for UFA and UFH (10 × 10 = 100) gives about 95% confidence that RfD = NOAEL ÷ 100 is adequately conservative. Baird et al. (1996) found that a total uncertainty factor of 1,000 tends to provide about 99% confidence of adequate conservatism when three default values of 10 are used, and a total of 3,000 provides a similar result when four uncertainty factors are used.
