Nanomaterials in IUCLID 5

The Nanomaterials in IUCLID 5 Industry User User Manual gives practical instruction to REACH registrants on how to include information on different forms of a substance in a IUCLID 5 dossier.

The manual introduces a book-keeping principle where each form gets a specific label that enables it to be tracked throughout the dossier: instructions are given on how to create labels for form-specific Reference substances, composition blocks, Endpoint study records and analytical data. In particular, the manual gives instructions that will enable registrants to consistently create and label Endpoint study records such that it is clear which composition or form was used as the test substance for that study.

The technical manual will ensure that industry can have a coherent approach on how information on nanoforms is structured in a dossier. This will also simplify the retrieval of information on the forms of a substance that are included in a given dossier.

Download Nanomaterials in IUCLID 5 User Manual [2.2 Mb]

A video tutorial is also available. It illustrates in practice how registrants can explicitly report when a nanoform has been used in (experimental) studies. The tutorial follows the instructions given in the IUCLID User Manual 'Nanomaterials in IUCLID 5'.
