Customisation opportunities of IUCLID for the Management of Chemical Data – 3rd edition
IUCLID (International Uniform Chemical Information Database) is a software application designed to record, store, maintain and exchange data on chemicals. It is a key software application for both regulatory bodies and the chemical industry where it is used in the implementation of various regulatory programmes. IUCLID can be customised and configured to manage chemical data in different contexts and is a platform employing globally harmonised data elements pertinent to chemicals. It is continuously updated to provide greater customisation, extension and integration with other tools. This third edition provides the latest updates on IUCLID features and processes, including the use of PostgreSQL, an updated matrix view of the use of IUCLID in OECD countries, the new release schedule, and information on new tools to support the use of IUCLID (Data Uploader) and the IUCLID Customisation Forum.
In addition, an IUCLID Customisation Forum is newly available for developers from different regulatory programmes and jurisdictions to share customised elements for the IUCLID application.
WHAT is the International Uniform ChemicaL Information Database (IUCLID)
IUCLID is a software application designed to record, store, maintain and exchange data on the intrinsic and hazard properties of chemical substances or mixtures, as well as the uses of these substances and the associated exposure levels. It is a key software application for both regulatory bodies and the chemical industry where it is used in the implementation of various regulatory programmes. Its principal function is to capture and make available data on chemicals, in a structured and harmonised way. IUCLID supports international cooperation regarding the management of chemicals. It is part of an “ecosystem” of IT tools developed and promoted by the OECD and its member countries around common harmonised electronic formats. Its format captures information which comply with the reporting requirements of the OECD Test Guidelines, as well as harmonised electronic formats, the OECD Harmonised Templates for Reporting Chemical Test Summaries (OHTs) and other national/international methods used for chemical studies. The OECD Test Guidelines1 play a role in the system of Mutual Acceptance Data among OECD members and non-OECD member adherents which supports international harmonisation, reduction of duplicative testing of chemicals and the minimisation of barriers to trade.
