For High Production Volume Chemicals, the IUCLID data sets submitted by the manufacturers and importers in the context of Council Regulation (EEC) 793/93 can be downloaded as PDF files as well as IUCLID export files. These contain summaries of available studies on hazard of chemicals for numerous endpoints.
For substances listed in EINECS, the site can be queried for chemicals by CAS number, EC number, substance name and molecular formula. Substances listed in ELINCS can also be queried by trade name and registration number. Queries for hazardous properties are not possible. The OECD-IUCLID export files can be downloaded and imported into a local IUCLID installation. Extensive query functions on chemical identifiers and hazard endpoints can be performed with the IUCLID Software .
