The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is the driving force among regulatory authorities in implementing the EU's groundbreaking chemicals legislation for the benefit of human health and the environment as well as for innovation and competitiveness. ECHA helps companies to comply with the legislation, advances the safe use of chemicals, provides information on chemicals and addresses chemicals of concern.
ECHA contributes to the development of alternative methods to testing and promotes their use. As one example, the Agency develops and manages, in cooperation with the OECD, the QSAR Toolbox. It is a software application which supports companies to identify data which may be relevant for assessing the hazards of chemicals.
