ECHA Cloud Services
ECHA Cloud Services is a secure online platform used to distribute ECHA’s IT applications in a cloud environment.
The first services focus on IUCLID as it is crucial for the 2018 registration deadline. Their functionalities are prioritised for the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The IUCLID Cloud application runs in a browser and, therefore, complements the IUCLID application in helping SMEs to register their chemicals for the upcoming registration deadline.
To access the cloud space, you need to log in using your ECHA Account credentials. These are the same that you have, for example, to access REACH-IT. If you do not have an ECHA Account, you can create one on the ECHA Cloud Services web page before accessing a service.
Once you are logged in, you can select between the available services:
- IUCLID Cloud Trial
- IUCLID Cloud for SMEs
IUCLID Cloud Trial
Try out the IUCLID Cloud service by working fully in a web browser without installing anything locally. This service gives you 100 MB of data storage and will be automatically updated whenever there is a new release of IUCLID. As this is a trial version, there are no backups taken of the data or dedicated helpdesk support.
Why use the IUCLID Cloud Trial?
To get familiar with the upcoming cloud environment. You can also use it for training purposes.
IUCLID Cloud for SMEs
Work always with the latest version of IUCLID online. This service, targeted to be used by SMEs or their consultants, gives you up to 1 GB of data storage, fully managed backups and dedicated helpdesk support. You can, by working fully on a web browser, use the IUCLID Cloud application to prepare your registration dossiers and validate it. As the service is aimed to be used by less frequent users of IUCLID, not all functionalities have been implemented. However, you can launch the IUCLID Cloud client (traditional IUCLID that stores data in the cloud) to use more advanced IUCLID functions if needed.
Why use the IUCLID Cloud for SMEs?
To avoid operating IUCLID locally and benefit from the user-friendly cloud environment to prepare your registration dossiers.
