IUPAC Subcommittee on InChI

IUPAC Subcommittee of the InChI Trust

The InChI Trust, established in May 2009, provides a means of continuing the development and maintenance of the InChI standard which are partially funded from annual Membership dues. The IUPAC Division VIII InChI Subcommittee (hereinafter called the “IUPAC InChI Subcommittee”) represents IUPAC’s authority for recognition of the InChI standard. The InChI Trust Board of Directors includes an IUPAC representative.

Requests for changes, whether corrections or extensions, to the InChI algorithm and/or the related InChIKey hash algorithm can arise from InChI Trust members or other InChI users, or from within IUPAC. The IUPAC InChI Subcommittee and the InChI Trust Project Director consider all requests for change, define corresponding requirements and communicate these requirements to the InChI Trust with suggestions for prioritization.
