Learn to use the new interface
To support the IUCLID user community during the transition, this webpage provides training and guidance material specifically to help you get familiar with using the web user interface. Whether you are completely new to IUCLID or a user of the ‘classic’ user interface, this webpage will help you understand what features are available in the web interface, how to use them, and how to navigate and search in the new interface.
Install the latest version of IUCLID which includes the web interface from here. Alternatively, you can subscribe to IUCLID Cloud to use the web interface if you are submitting dossiers under the EU REACH, CLP, SCIP, PPP regulatory frameworks.
You can use or re-use the guidance material on this webpage to help yourself and your colleagues become better acquainted with the web interface. If you would like to comment on the training material provided here, or on the web user interface itself, you can post your feedback on our IUCLID LinkedIn Group.
Access the Classic interface of IUCLID
If you need to use the classic interface to carry out some specific task that you cannot do via the web interface, get instructions on how to open it from the link below. You will be asked to answer a short survey before getting the instructions.
Web interface functionalities manual
Here is the Functionalities manual of IUCLID 6 for the web interface. The manual provides useful descriptions of the features found in the web interface as well as a guide in Section 2 "Help for users familiar with the IUCLID client" to help users familiar with the classic user interface move to the web interface.
Translations of this manual are provided below. Note that the version in English is the most recent version, although the content in the translations is still relevant.
We have published a number of video tutorials showing how to use the web user interface. You can view these video tutorials from the IUCLID YouTube channel.
