Please get informed about the Clarification Statement on the data transfer between IMDS and CAMDS.

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.
3 - HPE is replaced by DXC in the entire document.
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.
In the Help category OEM Specific Information you will find Ford Motor Company's RSMS Rollout Package 2017.
