Report generator

IUCLID 6 includes a Report Generator to extract IUCLID data and to present this data in a user-friendly report format such as PDF or RTF, or in machine-readable format such as CSV or XML. These reports are used in a variety of business processes by industry and assessing authorities. Reports are typically generated from single IUCLID 6 datasets and dossiers.

Many reports are ready to use and made available by default inside IUCLID 6, and can be generated using the Report Generator. The main use of each report available inside IUCLID or published on this page is described here.

The web user interface of IUCLID contains the full functionality of the Report Generator from IUCLID 6 v3.16.1 forwards. An updated and improved IUCLID Report Manager will be available in the web user interface from April 2021 onwards in all IUCLID distributions.

Uploading your own reports

Uploading own reports

The Report Generator also allows you to upload reports into your own organisation's IUCLID. For example, you can upload reports which are not currently available by default inside a IUCLID package or upload fixed reports if there has been an issue found. See the manual Functionalities of IUCLID 6 for more information on generating and managing reports, and how to upload reports using the IUCLID Report Manager. The Report Manager is currently available only in the 'classic' swing interface, but all reports which are uploaded can be generated from both the web or classic interfaces.

In order to upload and manage a report template, follow these steps in the classic interface:

  1. Click on the Report generator icon on the home page of the IUCLID classic interface.
  2. Click on Manage reports, which then opens the Manage reports box.
  3. Click Add in the bottom left-hand corner of the Manage reports box.
  4. Fill in the various details of your report some of which are mandatory:
    1. Name of the report.
    2. Upload the report templates; assigning a main template.
    3. Output formats with which the report is compatible.
    4. Add a stylesheet if needed.
    5. Select whether your report is compatible with Substances and/or Mixtures. Note that report generation for Categories is not yet supported.
  5. Click ‘Save’.

When you come to generate a report, based on your selections above, you will see your customised template and the available output format types.

Creating your own reports

Creating your own reports

The Report Generator allows you to customise and manage your own report templates and to use these with the Report Generator to extract data from IUCLID’s datasets and dossiers. The IUCLID team can help you to create your own report templates, and provide the necessary technical and business support. Use the IUCLID functional mailbox to contact us with any such request.

Typically, we recommend the creation of customised report templates when:

  • There is a set of structured IUCLID data which you repeatedly have to use in your business processes, such as study summary data, use information, or composition data.
  • You want to regularly send IUCLID data in a readable format to other organisations.
  • There is another IT system which you feed IUCLID data in to and which you wish to have ready in machine-readable format, such as XML or CSV.

There are basic instructions available to create customised reports together with a few examples:

  • DocBook report template example (.ftl)
  • XML report template example (.ftl)
  • Test IUCLID 6 dataset (.i6z)

When creating your own report templates, you can also upload your own stylesheet (.xsl) file into the Report Generator which adds extra formatting conditions to the .rtf output. Here are two stylesheets which you can use as a basis for creating your own stylesheets:

  • Default IUCLID stylesheet (.xsl) used with the CSR report
  • Two modified stylesheets (landscape and portrait in .xsl) which converts an RTF or PDF document into a landscape or portrait format accordingly, as well as permitting different text colours and table cell colours.

Sharing your report templates

If you wish to share the templates you have customised and potentially have these published on the IUCLID 6 website, please contact ECHA through the IUCLID functional mailbox.

Modular approach to reporting

Modular approach to reporting
IUCLID 6.5 comes with a set of modules which can be easily re-used to create an assessment report. The modules encompass the major robust summary studies and endpoint summaries from IUCLID, as well as classification and labelling information, physical-chemical summaries, and chemical structure identity and composition.

Here is a short video on how the modular approach works. The video gives an overview of the steps to include, as an example, the module for environmental hazard assessment and the study information on aquatic algae in a main report template.

The modules which are currently available and are compatible with IUCLID v6.5.1.2 are found here.

The available modules have been mapped to the current Chemical Safety Report (REACH) to help you understand the layout and presentation of the different studies and summaries. The mapping is ordered by CSR chapter, and each one can be expanded and collapsed. You can find the mapping here.

An example report template of how to use the common modules can be found here. The example can be generated from a Substance or Mixture entity, and has a different output depending on which entity you generate from and what data you have available in the IUCLID you use to generate the report, see the table of contents below. To upload the reports, see the above section on 'Uploading your own reports'. The main report template is named 'main_report_template_modular.ftl'

Report templates

Report templates available to download

The report templates in the table below are compatible, with a few exceptions, with IUCLID 6.5. You can download report templates that are compatible with IUCLID 6.2 from here, and IUCLID 6.3 from here. To see what has changed for the 6.5 release, see the release notes.

REACH Chemical Safety Report (CSR) in RTF/PDF/XML formats

The chemical safety report documents the chemical safety assessment undertaken as part of the REACH registration process, and is the key source from which the registrant provides information to all users of chemicals through the exposure scenarios. It also forms a basis for other REACH processes including substance evaluation, authorisation and restriction. (Included in IUCLID 6.5 - 28.10.2020)
