Using the VEGA platform, you can access a series of QSAR (quantitative structure-activity relationship) models for regulatory purposes, or develop your own model for research purposes.
The QSAR models available for regulatory purposes have been optimised in accordance with the REACH requirements.
Presented at Workshop: REACH and QSAR: What can we learn from case studies? (Mario Negri Institute – Milano (Italy) April 6th 2011)

Using QSARs requires expertise, firstly in order to judge which model to use for a particular substance and endpoint, and secondly in order to evaluate the level of reliability in the results.
The CAESAR and VEGA platforms have been produced from EC-funded research, and are therefore freely available for use. The software can be downloaded. Furthermore, predicted values for more than four million chemicals will be made freely available.
