Risk Assessment Reports

Chemical hazards toxicological evaluation database

Last Updated March 29, 2024


The Food Safety Commission of Japan (FSCJ) has published risk assessments through the work of scientists since 2003 and provided risk assessment reports in PDF format in Japanese. We have also provided English summary for some chemical hazards. In order to share key toxicological data in those reports with the relevant stakeholders and to improve public access to key toxicological data, a chemical hazards toxicological evaluation database is established.
The database includes the following key toxicological information:

Toxicological findings;
Point of Departure (Route, Test, Duration, Species, Endpoint, Value (LOAEL, NOAEL etc.));
Reference value (ARfD, ADI etc.); and
Safety factor

In March 2023, The FSCJ launched the database for about 150 food additives(including about 60 flavoring agent) evaluated by the FSCJ. In March 2024, the FSCJ released the database for about 400 pesticides evaluated by the FSCJ. The users can download  the above data for each individual chemical hazard in xls, csv or pdf format.
This database will be expanded to other chemical substances evaluated by the FSCJ and updated by regular basis.
