For almost 10 years, scientists have been studying the benchmark dose (BMD) as a promising technique for the quantitative assessment of noncancer health effects. This report was developed to serve as a background document for discussing benchmark dose applications to noncancer risk assessments. The document focuses especially on critical decisions that must be made in deriving a BMD and applying the BMD in risk assessment. Major decisions in using the BMD are explained, and the sensitivity of the final result to each assumption is evaluated. The document also identifies many unresolved issues in benchmark dose application and identifies research that may help resolve some of these issues.
