Following a previous collaborative EU/EPA project focused on QSAR predictions for a selection of new chemicals which had been notified in the EC, a similar exercise was started in 1993 on existing chemicals. In the first phase, the project addresses the high production volume chemicals which are produced at levels above 1000 t/year in the EU and 454 t/year in the US. The relevant EU and US-EPA lists contain 1036 and 2881 organic substances respectively of which 749 are common to both. The joint project aims at an estimation through validated QSAR models of the physical-chemical, ecotoxicity and toxicity endpoints which are included in the regulation and where experimental data will become available in IUCLID (International Unified Chemicals Information Database).
