Join our webinar where we take a deeper look into the incorporation of the recently released OECD QSAR Assessment Framework (QAF) into ECHA's evaluation of (Q)SAR studies in REACH registrations.

Discover how the QAF aligns with ECHA's current practices and the relevant "Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.6: QSARs and grouping of chemicals".

Explore the updates introduced by the QAF to QSAR reporting formats, including the incorporation of new IUCLID fields in the QSAR Endpoint Study Record. Learn how REACH registrants must navigate these changes when submitting new or updated (Q)SAR studies.

The OECD QAF is a Guidance for the regulatory assessment of (Q)SAR models, predictions, and results based on multiple predictions. It was published by OECD in August 2023 as a result of a biannual project led by ECHA and the Italian Institute of Health (ISS), which involved over 40 experts from regulatory agencies around the world.

Don't miss this opportunity to enhance your understanding of how the QSAR Assessment Framework applies to REACH dossier evaluation.
