[21/07/2010] Upgrade of IUCLID: version 5.2.1 is now available
Version 5.2.1 brings improvements and corrections to IUCLID 5.2.
The use of IUCLID 5 is progressively increasing particularly with the forthcoming REACH registration deadline and more feedback has been received recently from users of this database. ECHA is continuously verifying and correcting the various issues reported to the IUCLID Helpdesk and is now making available an upgraded version of IUCLID 5.2.
This upgrade includes for example some enhancements of the appearance of the dossier headers and also prevents attachments from being removed on manual ordering of repeatable blocks (e.g. in section 1.4).
The installation of this new version is not mandatory and there is no compatibility issue with other tools like REACH-IT which are processing IUCLID files. All files created with previous IUCLID 5 versions can be opened with this latest version; however dossiers created with IUCLID 5.2.1 can only be exchanged between other IUCLID 5.2.1 installations.
The upgrade process is simple as it only replaces some of the application files (i.e. there is no data migration involved). It is recommended for all the users to update their 5.2 version to this 5.2.1 version to get rid of issues previously reported.
Before you proceed with the upgrade please read the release note where the changes are detailed. This document as well as the updated installation manuals is included in the installation packages that can be downloaded from the IUCLID website: click here.
