Prolongation of IMDS Release 13.0 test period and new go-live date May 19th, 2021
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
we would like to inform you about the IMDS Steering Committee decision to postpone the IMDS Release 13.0 on production from March 10th, 2021 to May 19th, 2021.
The IMDS Release 13.0 schedule has been very tight for all parties involved due to the late finalization of requirements by ECHA, the required time for IMDS-Advanced Interface (IMDS-AI) relevant development and the time needed for necessary adjustments to in-house systems of suppliers and manufacturers.
Therefore, in-house integrators asked for a prolongation of the integration and test period for IMDS Release 13.0. This would lead to a postponement of IMDS Release 13.0.
On the other hand, many companies are waiting for the implementation of SCIP submission functions in IMDS. This has also been addressed and taken into consideration.
However, after balancing all the requirements, the IMDS Steering Committee yesterday decided to prolong the IMDS Release 13.0 test period by about two months. The new go-live date for the IMDS production environment will be 19th May, 2021.
With this Release postponement, the following changes will be delayed:
- Rec019 MDSs deactivation - postponed to 19th May 2021
- Material Classification deactivations - postponed to 19th May 2021
Furthermore, the Metal Wizard function will be shifted to the next Release after IMDS Release 13.0.
The following file contains a list of substances which were added to the REACH Candidate List of SVHCs and will be marked SVHC in IMDS on 10th February 2021.
