Risk assessments typically examine the effects of high doses of administered chemicals to determine the lowest observed adverse effect levels (LOAELs) and no observed adverse effect levels (NOAELs); reference doses, which are assumed safe for human exposure, are then calculated from these doses using a number of safety factors.

The PTWI or the tolerable daily intake (TDI) for a contaminant is usually derived from the lowest observed adverse effect level (LOAEL) in the most sensitive species, using an uncertainty factor of 100, provided that the relative susceptibility of humans and animals is unknown at the time of derivation of the tolerable intake.
