Tools for REACH Compliance


By June 1, 2018, all new and existing chemical substances manufactured or imported into Europe in volumes greater than 1 tonne per year must be registered with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) under the REACH program (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals). Specific information pertaining to each substance registered includes chemical structure, name, physical properties, and toxicological information.

ACD/Labs' offers tools to facilitate your REACH submission process without the need for labor-intensive laboratory experiments.

ACD/Name—reliably generate accurate names based on IUPAC rules, along with InChI keys and SMILES strings for your chemical compounds.

ACD/Labs Percepta Predictors—predict physicochemical properties such as logP, logD, pKa, aqueous solubility, and boiling point. Predictions are supplied with a display of the 5 most similar structures in the internal database.

ACD/Labs Percepta Profilers—screen and profile compounds for PhysChem and ADMET properties including pKa, lipophilicity, hERG inhibition, oral bioavailability, and more

ACD/Spectrus DB—Capture and share live analytical and chemical knowledge throughout your organization for collaborative science and faster decision-making


  • Fill data gaps with predicted properties
  • Reduce/eliminate the need for animal experiments
  • Extend the accuracy of physicochemical properties and select toxicological endpoints to proprietary chemical space by training the models with in-house experimental data
  • Build a fully searchable chemical safety database and easily create reports for export

ACD/Labs' software solution for REACH provides accurate and reliable physicochemical and toxicological property predictions with systematic nomenclature for chemical structures. This Chemical Knowledge Management system will enable you to organize chemical safety information to help bridge the data gap for REACH Compliance.

In addition, to aid in the protection of your intellectual property, ACD/Labs provides a chemical nomenclature package that is focused on providing non-ambiguous and accurate names. The most challenging areas of nomenclature are covered. Learn more.
