JRC QSAR Model Database


Access the JRC QSAR Model Database

In the regulatory assessment of chemicals, Quantiative Structure-Activity relationship (QSAR) models are playing an increasingly important role in predicting properties needed for hazard and risk assessment and for which data gaps exist. The JRC QSAR Model Database provides information on the validity of QSAR models that have been submitted to the JRC. The database is intended to help to identify valid QSARs, e.g. for the purposes of REACH.

The QSAR Model Reporting Format (QMRF) is a harmonised template for summarising and reporting key information on QSAR models, including the results of any validation studies. The information is structured according to the OECD principles for the validation of QSAR models.

Developers and users of QSAR models can submit information on these models by using the QMRF. The JRC will then perform a quality control (i.e. comprehensibility and completeness of the documentation) of the QMRFs submitted, so that properly documented summaries of can be included in the JRC QSAR Model Database.

Inclusion of a model in the JRC QSAR Model Database does not imply acceptance or endorsement by the JRC or the European Commission. Responsibility for use of the models lies with the end-users.
