VERSION 6.1P (10/30/2008)

New window "Announcements"
Directly after login each user receives a notification screen with information from the IMDS Steering Committee. These announcements will require confirmation from the user that they have read the announcement. This function is only visible when messages/information from the IMDS Steering Committee are available. Unless the button is checked stating you want to keep the notice, past notices will not be available to the user in the system. 

Change of the 10% undisclosed substance check rule
(already rolled out September 11th, 2008)
The 10 % undisclosed substance check rule for materials of classifications 5.1.a, 5.1.b, 5.4 and 5.5 containing a structure acceptable according to Recommendation 010 (a material with sub-materials) has been amended: The amount of undisclosed substances of these materials is calculated on top-material level when releasing or accepting (instead for each sub-material individually). A warning will still be generated if the total of the undisclosed substances on the top-material level exceeds 10%.

Display REACH-SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern)
This function to filter for REACH-SVHS is implemented as an additional flag for Basic Substances similar to the GADSL flags "duty-to-declare" and "prohibited". The user will be able to search for REACH-SVHS or to analyze MDSs/Modules for containes REACH-SVHS in the certificate of expenditure screen.

Since all REACH-SVHS relevant for the automotive industry will be added to the GADSL, the GADSL category and the flag for REACH-SVHS will be displayed collectively in the IMDS. In the ingredients screen, REACH-SVHS substance names will always be underlines in the product structure tree, regardless of what filter is selected.

Reporting of small parts
The widest allowed ranges of basic substances contained in a material are specified in Recommendation 001. The maximum allowed width of the ranges depend on the classification of the material and on the minimum value of the range of the basic substance in the material. The non-conformance of the recommended substance range triggers currently a warning.

Less restructive check rules will be applied to materials used in small parts. A small part is defined as part with a measured weight less than 5g. The following general maximum portion range for substances (independent of material classification) will be allowed:

Portion: from X % to Y % Maximum M = Y % - X %
0 < X ≤ 100 M ≤ 10

This range allowance applies to all basic substances in the material of the concerned part, with the exception of substances labeled D (= duty-to-declare), P (= prohibited) or D/P in the GADSL (for these parts the usual ranges, as listed in Recommendation 001 apply).

According to this the Examiner Check No. 22 (Check for recommendation compliance of ranges) has been adapted.

Hiding No Longer Valid Applications
As the ELV is updated, some of the previous applications become obsolete. The information from these applications is still needed. As a consequence, data that was previously entered will still be shown, but will be marked as legacy data. Hidden application data will not be available for new datasheets. The legacy data will be considered valid and can still be used, no error or warning messages will be generated.

Display Client Manager information of own company
In the User Settings in menu "Extras" the user can change own user data such as first name, last name and email address. At the bottom of the settings window, a list with Client Manager data is shown that displays all client managers within the roof company along with any associated Org Units.
