[09/07/2015] Try the IUCLID 6 beta version

You can now test a beta version of the upcoming IUCLID 6 which has been published on the new IUCLID 6 website. A full version of IUCLID 6, the tool used to compile regulatory data on chemicals, will be released in Q2 2016. Until then, IUCLID 5 must continue to be used to prepare regulatory submissions.

The beta version gives all IUCLID users an opportunity to get familiar with the new look-and-feel of the tool before the official release of IUCLID 6.

If your company is using IUCLID from a server, we strongly recommend that you download the server version and take this opportunity to test the installation process and prepare your IT environments for a smooth transfer in 2016. The beta version does not contain all the data structures and functionalities of the final IUCLID 6 release. Therefore, all users are required to make a final upgrade to IUCLID 6 in 2016.

If you are using IUCLID installed on your own computer, you may download the IUCLID 6 Desktop beta version. It comes with a brand new installer, and requires no additional software. After downloading the installer, the IUCLID 6 Desktop beta version will be ready for you to test in a few minutes.

A set of installation instructions and a list of solutions to known installation issues are available for the IUCLID 6 Server beta version. Additionally, the ECHA Helpdesk will be available to answer your questions.

IUCLID 6 plugins

In the beta version of IUCLID 6, the only plugin included is for the help system. The other plugins, such as the validation assistant and the reporting module will be introduced in later versions. At the end of 2014 a survey was launched to collect user feedback and requirements for the existing IUCLID 5 plugins: report generator, validation assistant, dissemination, and fee calculation. The survey responses were analysed and then summarised in a report that will serve as a basis for the development of the same functionalities for IUCLID 6.
