Welcome

NEW: OECD QSAR Toolbox Version 3.1 Available

The OECD maintains the QSAR Toolbox, which is a set of computational tools that can help users group chemicals into categories to fill information gaps without new testing. QSARToobox.org contains instructions on how to download the software, which is freely available, and tutorials and guidance documents for filling specific endpoints. ICAPO has contributed financial and policy support to the development of the toolbox. Learn more >

About ICAPO

The International Council on Animal Protection in OECD Programmes (ICAPO) seeks to ensure the widest possible integration of alternative methods in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) influential guidelines and programmes. The OECD is an economic alliance of 30 of the world's industrialised countries. Based in Paris, the OECD co-ordinates the development of standardised chemical testing guidelines which are then adopted by the member countries. The OECD also co-ordinates the development of chemical testing programmes, such as its current programme on endocrine disruptors.
