What is Chesar?

CHEmical Safety Assessment and Reporting tool

Chesar is an application developed by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) to help companies to carry out their chemical safety assessments (CSAs) and to prepare their chemical safety reports (CSRs) and exposure scenarios (ESs) for communication in the supply chain.

Chesar enables registrants to carry out their safety assessments in a structured, harmonised, transparent and efficient way. This includes the importing of substance-related data directly from IUCLID, describing the uses of the substance, carrying out exposure assessment including identifying conditions of safe use, related exposure estimates and demonstrating control of risks. Based on this, Chesar automatically generates the CSR and exposure scenarios for communication as a text document, and export information on use and exposure to IUCLID. Chesar also facilitates the re-use (or update) of assessment elements generated in a single Chesar instance or imported from external sources.
