There is debate in Europe on the use of QSAR for REACH. The novelty of the regulation requires certain clarifications and examples. Guidance documents have been published by ECHA, but in many cases industry is still puzzled about the suitable use of the QSAR. ORCHESTRA wants to promote the debate and correct use of in silico models, and actions are planned to improve the use of QSAR. The EC project ANTARES is evaluating existing in silico models for REACH.
Watch the ORCHESTRA video documentary based on interviews with regulators, industry and QSAR developers.
