The COMBASE software platform has been developed under the framework of the LIFE COMBASE project (GA N LIFE15 ENV/ES/416 COMBASE) with the main purpose of supporting the safe and sustainable production and use of biocidal active substances from a life cycle perspective.
The tool includes a list of modules to assist SMEs and stakeholders on the ecotoxicological assessment of biocidal active substances (BAS), the identification of metabolites of concern and the comparative assessment of the risk posed by the active substances under normal conditions of use.
Before using the COMBASE software platform, please carefully read the latest version of the user´s manual, which will allow you to quickly familiarise yourself with the tool. If in any doubt, please contact the administrator by e-mail, email@example.com.
