Welcome to Chemical Toxicology and Environmental Fate tool Print

This tool has been specifically developed to help SME users to assess the toxicity, environmental fate and human health effects of their chemicals using freely available non- testing methods such as (Q)SAR.

The TESS team recognized that there is an urgent need to help SMEs to find relevant information and to help them use (Q)SAR to fill the data gaps for their products so as to reduce the cost of REACH registration.

The material and resources available with this tool will help you to understand the process of filling the data gap and to identify the hazard of your chemical being persistant, bioaccumlative and toxic (PBT) using (Q)SAR.

To comply with REACH

According to REACH legislation, data on mammalian toxicity, environmental toxicity and environmental fate, including chemical and biotic degradation of your chemical is required for the registration purpose.  Based on this information the status of your chemical can be determined as well as ensuring that humans and the environment are not subjected to any significant risks.

However if you chemical is found to be persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT), or carcinogenic, mutagenic and toxic to reproduction (CMR) or an endocrine disrupter it must be registered earlier because it will need to be authorised so you need to start planning NOW.
