Since version 1.2.0 (January 2017), IUCLID 6 comes with support for web services out of the box in both Desktop and Server versions.

Please note that the IUCLID API is not supported and shall not be used with IUCLID instances provided by the ECHA Cloud Services.

IUCLID 6 offers a public REST Web Services API (IUCLID 6 Public REST API) for external systems for integration. This API will be maintained and backward compatibility will be ensured.

What are RESTful Web Services?

A web service is a service offered by a system to another system, communicating with each other via the World Wide Web (www).

A RESTful web service is built with Representational State Transfer (REST) architectural style:

  • Stateless communication protocol: HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP)
  • Data and functionality are considered resources and are accessed using Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs)
  • Resources are manipulated using a fixed set of operations mapped to HTTP methods: PUT (create), GET (read), POST (update), and DELETE (remove)
  • Resources are decoupled from their representation so that their content can be accessed in a variety of formats, such as HTML, XML, plain text, PDF, JPEG, JSON, etc.
