If your use is not in the list, please contact us to report it.The list of uses with descriptors of use can be dowloaded from the link below. However, they appear as they were discussed and potentially updated in the "old" IUCLID format. In the new 5.4 IUCLID, entries would have to be revised (compatibility of ERCs in the different sections).
