As part of the Community Strategy for Endocrine Disruptors, which aims to protect the environment and health of people within the European Union, the EC Joint Research Centre has launched EASIS. A web-based application, EASIS allows users to search for and collect the results from in vitro and in vivo tests on the endocrine activity (or lack thereof) of over 500 chemicals. The ability of the application to collect data from peer-reviewed studies complements other information sources, for example REACH registration data, thereby linking the research community with regulators and industry.
