How to obtain EQ-5D

If you are thinking of using EQ-5D but would like to see it first, please download the UK English sample version of the EQ-5D-3L, EQ-5D-5L or the EQ-5D-Y. These versions are for inspection purposes only. If you wish to view a sample version in your language (i.e. not UK English), please contact us.

If you have already seen EQ-5D and/or decided to go ahead and use it,  please register your study/trial/project or other first by completing the EQ-5D registration form. The EuroQol Office will then contact you by e-mail and inform you about the terms and conditions which apply to your use of the EQ-5D, including licensing fees (if applicable). Please allow 5 working days to receive this reply.
