This volume presents papers devoted to improving understanding of the sources and magnitude of uncertainty in the risk assessment process, discussing and disseminating means of reducing the uncertainty in risk assessment, and describing, characterizing, and expressing uncertainty in risk assessment, with particular emphasis on the implications for risk management and other policy decisions. Uncertainty is considered in the four phases of the risk assessment process: hazard identification; exposure assessment; dose-response modeling and risk characterization; and communication.
