Chesar updated


An update of ECHA's Chemical Safety Assessment and Reporting tool, Chesar, has been published.

Helsinki, 15 November 2017 – Chesar 3.3 improves the support for sectors developing use maps and for those using them. In addition, the update:

  • is compatible with IUCLID 6.2 and the IUCLID Cloud Service;
  • improves user-friendliness of the application, e.g. by providing exposure estimates for solid substances in liquid products using the embedded ECETOC TRA worker tool;
  • improves the content of the reports generated, e.g. the chemical safety report and exposure scenarios for communication;
  • enables use maps developers to automatically generate their use maps in the agreed format, and hence support their updates.

If you are already a Chesar user, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to Chesar 3.3. Also new users are invited to use this latest version. The update is fully compatible and works best with the latest version of IUCLID 6 (v6.2) also published on 15 November 2017.

The Chesar user manuals and FAQs can be found on the Chesar website. The release note document gives more detailed information about all updates. As always, ECHA's Helpdesk will assist companies with any questions about this update.
