Science in Risk Assessment and Policy


SciRAP (Science in Risk Assessment and Policy) is a web-based reporting and evaluation resource developed to facilitate and increase the use of peer-reviewed toxicity and ecotoxicity literature in regulatory risk assessment of chemicals. The intention is to bridge the gap between academic research and chemicals regulation and policy.


This project is a collaboration between the Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry (ACES), Stockholm University, the Institute of Environmental Medicine (IMM), Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, and the research programme MistraPharma. Please contact us if you have questions or comments.




We are UPDATING our evaluation criteria! 

We are currently working on further improving the criteria and tool for evaluating in vivo toxicity studies. The current version will remain available online until the updates are complete. Click here to learn more or contact us with any questions.
