Terms and Conditions of Use

Version 4

    General purpose

    This collaborative website is a project of the OECD Environment Directorate in coordination with the European Chemicals Agency. Our aim is to provide a platform for developers from different regulatory programmes and jurisdictions to share and exchange informally customised elements for the International Uniform ChemicaL Information Database (IUCLID) in order to create efficiencies and promote harmonisation. 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.
