We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The Endocrine Active Substances Information System (EASIS) can be used to search for results from scientific studies on chemicals related to endocrine activity.
Currently the system contains information on the potential to interact with the endocrine system for over 500 different chemicals. This information is derived from approximately 9000 studies that cover both in vitro and in vivo assays in different species, including some human data.
Data relating to some naturally-occurring substances are also included.
EASIS data is structured according to the OECD Harmonised Templates making it compatible with other international data collection efforts.
