IUCLID 6.4 is available

A new version of IUCLID is available to all users. It includes an extended and more complete web interface, as well as an update to the format.

The web user interface, which is meant to become in the future the only user interface for IUCLID, has been improved. This version includes, for example, direct navigation to referenced documents in dossiers, advanced dossier creation, export and printing options including document selection, and a slightly more compact view for documents.

As in every major update of IUCLID, this version comes with an update of the format to take into account:

  • the latest evolutions of the REACH (for example, new nanoforms requirements) and CLP regulations (latest ATPs);
  • the future SCIP database notification format for substance of very high concern in articles as mentioned in the waste framework directive; and
  • the needs of several regulatory organisations including the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), and the organisations managing chemicals in Australia and New Zealand.

In relation to the update of the IUCLID format for nanomaterials, this new version of IUCLID also includes new validation assistant rules  to verify how these substance forms are reported in REACH registration dossiers.

This new version of IUCLID can read all IUCLID files generated since version 5.6. It can also export files compatible with version, 6.3, published last year. Users of IUCLID 6.2 or older versions should update their software to minimise the risk of not being able to process the most recent IUCLID files.

IUCLID 6.4 will be presented in more detail in a webinar that will take place on the 8th of November. You can register by clicking the link below.

The users of the ECHA Cloud services will have their IUCLID instances automatically upgraded.

Note that the IUCLID end-user license agreement has been updated to cover IUCLID-related tools, to explicitly encompass other regulations besides REACH and CLP, as well as to align with local Finnish law.

We regularly post additional information on our IUCLID LinkedIn group as well. Please join us and take part in the discussions.
