If only acute (short term) LC50 values are available, an arbitrary safety factor of 100 is usually applied. This factor tends to be reduced to 10 if chronic LC50 data are available for sensitive species. For some substances, ‘no effects concentrations’ (NOEC) are reported for long-term chronic studies. These values may be used as tentative standards without applying a safety factor, provided the test design is acceptable, and that they refer to relevant species and are supported by the other data available.
