    History of the OECD (Q)SAR Project

    International co-operation among OECD member countries on (Q)SARs started in the early 1990s. The objective of the OECD (Q)SAR project is to facilitate practical application of (Q)SAR approaches in regulatory contexts by governments and industry and to improve their regulatory acceptance.

    Introduction to (Quantitative) Structure Activity Relationships

    Structure-Activity Relationship (SAR) is an approach designed to find relationships between chemical structure (or structural-related properties) and biological activity (or target property) of studied compounds. As such it is the concept of linking chemical structure to a chemical property (e.g., water solubility) or biological activity including toxicity (e.g., fish acute mortality). Qualitative SARs and quantitative SARs,

    Guidance on Grouping of Chemicals

    Revised Guidance for Grouping of Chemicals. Considers closely related chemicals as a group, or cateogory, rather than as individual chemicals. In this approach, not every chemical needs to be tested for every endpoint.

    Brochure on eChemPortal: The Global Portal to Information on Chemical Substances

    This brochure provides details on the project for eChemPortal: The Global Portal to Information on Chemical Substances. eChemPortal is an internet gateway that provides direct free access to information on the properties of chemicals (physical-chemical properties, environmental fate and behaviour, ecotoxicity, toxicity) as well as to hazard and risk assessments. It allows users to simultaneously search for chemicals contained in
