We devote this article to the approach to solving tasks in the Descriptive Structure of chemicals research and testing. It is suggested by the Committee of Chemistry by the ОECD. Developed within the Committee of standard templates, storage and transmission of information (harmonized OECD templates) describes all elements of data, dedicated to reports on researches and testing, including format in which the information should be entered and formed. We construe international experience of building informational systems based on harmonized templates of the OECD (IUCLID, QSAR Toolbox, eChemPortal, AOP­KB) and we provide suggestions on Russian regulatory system for the treatment of chemical products and substances development, taking into account international experience implementing harmonized templates the OECD, including exports of domestic chemical complex support.
