IUCN Species Information Service (SIS)

The IUCN Species Information Service (SIS) is the central database used by IUCN to store and manage species accounts and assessments for publication on The IUCN Red List.

Access to SIS is restricted to users who are involved in global or regional IUCN Red List assessment projects (e.g., IUCN SSC Specialist Group members, Red List Authority Coordinators, Red List Partners, IUCN Global Species Programme staff, IUCN Regional Office staff).

Registered users can access SIS online where they can prepare, edit and submit assessments to the IUCN Red List Unit in an appropriate format for publication on the IUCN Red List.

SIS Tools and Guidance Documents

The following documents and tools are available to help users to find their way around SIS and begin using the system to create Red List assessments. Please note that some of these resources need updating, however they still provide a useful guide to using SIS:

SIS News and Updates

We aim to keep all users of SIS informed of any news and updates to the service through an online announcement page.

For all enquiries about SIS, please contact the IUCN Red List Unit.
