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 wizard. 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.

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. 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 the table of available report templates below, you will see an indication in the Status column if the report template is included by default in the latest version of IUCLID 6. Examples of reports available in IUCLID 6 include the Chemical Safety Report (CSR), which can be generated in RTF or PDF formats as well as in XML format, and a Summary of Product Characteristics (SPC) report which can be generated in XML format and can be uploaded into SPC Editor.

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.

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:
    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 report templates

IT developers, or users with a certain level of IT skills, can create their own report templates in order to generate reports based on IUCLID data, using the IUCLID 6 Report Generator.

Basic instructions are made available 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.
