Dichroweb - Account Application Form

Due to the coronavirus, several precautionary measures have been put in place. These measures could mean staff shortages, potentially causing intermittent services at dichroweb.

To apply for a DichroWeb accout on-line, complete the form below. When your details have been verified, DichroWeb will email to you an agreement form and generate an account. The account will be activated when you print out and return the signed form (by uploading it at; you can also send it by surface mail or FAX) and you will be notified by email. (NB. Do not print out this web-form, only the form that we email to you is acceptable and will contain a unique reference number.)

We aim to make the procedure as fast as possible but please be patient if you have to wait for a few days especially if you return your form by post or FAX.

NB: Due to increased activity from form-filling spam robots we have had to increase the security checks on this form. This should not cause any problems for human users, but if you experience difficulties, please let us know - cdweb[at symbol]
