Latest release

The latest version is version 0.9.2

Releasedate: April 30th, 2021.

The demo mode of this release is set to "true" by default.

This version contains two patches:

  • Update of the IUCLID connectivity test (previous version reported error in some customer environments, even if the connection was operational)
  • Option to accept all HTTPS certificates from IUCLID, in case this certificate is not in a trust-chain or part of the local Java certificate store. This option is false by default. Please see the main page for details on how to activate this option, in case an error of type "Iuclid request failed: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target" occurs when supplying the IUCLID connection information.

Previous versions

Version 0.9.1

Releasedate: April 25th, 2021.

The demo mode of this release is set to "true" by default.

The version contains a patch to correctly upload and compare attachments.

This version has been tested with the prerelease of IUCLID 6 version 5.15.0 - to be officially released on April 28th, 2021 by ECHA; please look at the IUCLID download page for the latest update. If the API or the IUCLID format definitions for the target entities eventually change in future releases, the functionality of this release may break and will need to be updated.

As this is the first release, this version is declared to be a beta testing version. The demo mode is active per default, but can be turned off to use the IIP in productive mode after testing.

Version 0.9.0

Releasedate: April 23rd, 2021

First official release.

Current scope and limitations

The following limitations are known, a fix or extension was out of scope for the latest release:


  • Date fields have to be supplied in the scheme YYYY-MM-DD. When entering information in Excel make sure, that dates are saved in this format. Eventually use the prefix ' to force Excel not to automatically change the date format to the local Windows settings.
  • The IIP uses 5 parallel threads (processes) to upload the information to IUCLID; and each thread has a timeout of 5 minutes. In case of slow connections to IUCLID and large attachments the timeout may eventually be triggered. Please be so kind to inform us in such a case, we are interested in those real-life examples in different scenarios to eventually make those settings configurable.
  • Confidentiality flags / information cannot be set in this release, the respective fields are therefore not part of the templates
  • When the IIP detects, that IUCLID has already the respective information (using the value of the "Primary Key" attribute), then the attribute values and the attachments of the entity are replaced. For repeating attributes / attachments, there is no additve update.
  • When the IIP detects that IUCLID already has an instance with the same value of the primary key, the values in IUCLID are completely overwritten by the data / attachments in the CSV import.
  • If the IIP and the IUCLID instance are in different networks separated by a proxy server, the IUCLID connection may fail. In this case, the proxy information has to be supplied as JVM parameters either in the startup scripts of the application server or in its admin consule. This has to be tested individually. Please consult your local IT for details.

Reference Substance:

In this release the following fields are not part of the import template and cannot be filled via the CSV import:

  • Inventory number (Inventory.InventoryEntry) - this is a dynamic search in the inventory and may return multiple results

The following fields have restricted functionality:
