Abstract: Different regulatory schemes worldwide, and in particular the preparation for the new REACH legislation on chemicals in Europe, increase the reliance on estimation methods for predicting potential chemical hazard. To meet the increased expectations, the availability of valid (Q)SARs becomes a critical issue, especially for endpoints that have complex mechanisms of action, are time- and cost-consuming, and require a large number of animals to test. Here, findings from the survey on (Q)SARs for mutagenicity and carcinogenicity, initiated by the European Chemicals Bureau (ECB) (European Commission, DGJRC, IHCP) and carried out by the Istituto Superiore di Sanita are summarized, key aspects are discussed, and a broader view towards future needs and perspectives is given.
