A new version of ECHA's chemical safety and report tool Chesar is now available
Media enquiries: ECHA Press
Chesar is designed to help companies carry out their Chemical Safety Assessments (CSA) and preparing their Chemical Safety Reports (CSR). The tool developed by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is a plug-in to IUCLID 5. Chesar version 1.2 can now be downloaded from the Chesar website.
Helsinki, 05 August 2011 - Chesar 1.2 enables the users to generate the exposure scenarios for communication to downstream users. These exposure scenarios can then be annexed to the extended Safety Data Sheet.
Chesar also enables the registrant to create a full Chemical Safety Report (CSR), once the hazard assessment and (if required) the exposure assessment are finalised. The CSR is created in a text format as well as in an exchangeable database format (XML Docbook format).
As with previous versions, Chesar 1.2 can be installed on IUCLID 5.3. The new Chesar 1.2 installation packages (for standalone and distributed versions) are available on the Chesar website Detailed installation manuals are also available on the Chesar download page.
Please note that together with the possibility to generate exposure scenarios for communication, other new features have been added to Chesar 1.2 (for more details, consult the Chesar 1.2 release note).
The Agency welcomes any feedback you may have on the Chesar software and will take this into consideration in the development of future versions of Chesar. You may provide feedback via the ECHA helpdesk online form.
