19-May-2017

On 1st July 2017, the IMDS Terms of Use will be amended as follows:

1 - Section 7: add the following paragraph at the end of 7 (c).

Suppliers agree that their IMDS data can be transferred by IMDS Users, derived from the Suppliers’ MDS:

- into a Third-Party-System applicable in the country of supply and recognized as following the defined rules: https://public.mdsystem.com/en/web/imds-public-pages/non-standard-data-use

- to external non-IMDS recipients in as much as this information is needed to comply with regulatory requirements.

2 - Section 8: replace the first paragraph by the following two paragraphs:

(8) Cost of Using IMDS

IMDS is funded by the participating vehicle manufacturers (=member companies) for the exclusive use of their supply-chains. The  basic  use  of  IMDS  and  its  services  through  the  internet  link http://www.mdsystem.com / menu ‘System’ (on the IMDS Public Pages including  the USER application and registration), is  free  of  charge only for suppliers and sub-suppliers of the member companies. For the avoidance of doubt, using IMDS to serve obligations within the supply-chain respectively to provide requested information to a participating member company shall be allowed. A company may use IMDS to fulfil its own obligations as an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) at the end of the supply chain.  In this case the conclusion of a separate contract with DXC is compulsory. In case of doubt a registrant shall contact DXC for clarification.

DXC reserves the right to offer additional services and functions related to IMDS which are not part of the basic use of IMDS. These services and functions may require a specific charge and  need  to  be defined in a separate agreement between the USER of such services and DXC, and  are not part of the Terms of Use.

3 - HPE is replaced by DXC in the entire document.

New IMDS Terms of Use (changes marked in yellow).

 

19-May-2017

The following Application Codes will be changed from "Hidden" to "Deactivated" on 1st June 2017:

AQ 13 - "Solder in electronic circuit boards and other electric applications"

AQ 16 - "Electrical components which contain lead in a glass or ceramic matrix compound except glass in bulbs and glaze of spark plugs"

What does this change mean to me?

If you assigned these application codes to an MDS, then you will get an error message if you try to send the MDS to a customer.  The error message can be removed by doing a new version of the MDS and assigning the new, relevant application code.

If you have received an MDS from your supplier that contains these application codes and you want to send this MDS to your customer, you will receive a warning.  You are still able to send this MDS to your customer.

To remove the warning flag, you will need to request an updated MDS from your supplier.
