Phase 5 of REACH 2018

Prepare your registration dossiers in IT format

The information on the identity, hazards, uses and risks of substances compiled in previous phases must be documented in a standardised IT format in registration dossiers. For this purpose, ECHA provides a free software called IUCLID.

In the simplest cases, it is also possible to create the dossier directly in ECHA’s submission tool REACH-IT.
