The OECD releases a report on the Customisation Opportunities of IUCLID for the Management of Chemical Data outlining the customisation opportunities for the International Uniform ChemicaL Information Database (IUCLID) version 6. It also gives an overview of what IUCLID offers to regulatory bodies and industry as a key application to record, store, maintain and exchange data on chemicals. IUCLID is currently used in a variety of countries and regulatory contexts. A central aspect of IUCLID is therefore the extent to which it is customisable and facilitates the management of chemical data across these different contexts.
There are four main elements to the customisation of IUCLID described in this document:
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.
