New and improved IUCLID: what changes
31 October 2018
11:00 - 13:00 EET, GMT +2

 

Description

A new major version of IUCLID will be made available at the end of October.

IUCLID 6.3 will feature, in addition to the interface you already know, a completely new user interface that runs in a standard web browser, with no need to install any other software. The new interface provides a more streamlined user-experience, whilst still containing the basic IUCLID features needed to prepare a REACH, CLP or BPR dossier.

It also brings changes to the IUCLID format including the latest OECD harmonised templates, specific elements for microorganism datasets and support for European poison centre notifications.

Join this webinar to find out about the changes and use the opportunity to ask questions from our experts.
