If you would like to know more about the registration process, please check the animation video How to obtain EQ-5D. It describes the process of registering and gaining access to the instrument, one of the most widely used measures of patient-reported outcomes.

EQ-5D Registration

The EuroQol Research Foundation is a registered non-profit organization in the Netherlands. The Foundation serves as the single point of distribution of the family of EQ-5D instruments.

No licence fee will be charged if the EQ-5D is used for a non-commercial purpose.

For most requests, you will only need to agree to our Terms of Use in order to obtain EQ-5D. However, please note that in some cases a license agreement and/or a digital cost recovery fee may be required (see the License Policy for more information). For example when EQ-5D data is collected digitally on a non-supported platform, or when the sample size is higher than 5000.

A license fee will be charged for commercial use of the EQ-5D.

For example when EQ-5D is used by or on behalf of a pharmaceutical company, medical device manufacturer, or any other for-profit company. See our License Policy for more information on our commercial license fee structure. Commercial requests will be handled with priority. The response time for commercial requests is 5 business days.
We use separate routes for commercial- and non-commercial registrations. Please select one of the routes below.
