The webinar presents the experience of different stakeholders using the QSAR Toolbox. After a status overview given by OECD, ECHA will present how the QSAR Toolbox results are used and assessed in different REACH processes. The webinar will continue with presentations from academia (Danish Technical University, DTU) and governmental organisations (Italian National Institute of Health, ISS; Environment and Climate Change Canada, ECCC; National Institute of Technology and Evaluation, NITE Japan) about their uses of the QSAR Toolbox.

The OECD QSAR Toolbox is a free software for screening and assessing chemical substances that uses computational methods as an alternative to animal testing. It is used worldwide by over 25,000 users such as regulatory authorities, industry, academia, and non-governmental organisations. The Toolbox is developed by ECHA and OECD.
