Message for CNH Industrial Suppliers

Dear Valued Supplier,

CNH Industrial has changed its Supplier Coding since November 2019 to harmonize and streamline the existing situation among the different CNH Industrial Legal Entity and simplify the work with our supply chain.

WHAT WE NEED YOU TO DO:

For all the PPAP parts and the requested current production parts, you are required to submit MDS (Material Data Sheet) in IMDS (International Material Data System) using the updated supplier code starting from 1st December 2020.  

It will be no longer possible to submit MDSs referred to current Supplier codes.

For MDSs already submitted no action required on your site, we will proceed in the conversion.

In case you are not yet aware of your CNH Industrial Supplier code we suggest you refer to your Key Account Manager or Commercial reference in charge of CNH Industrial to retrieve this information.

This refers to suppliers to the following CNH Industrial entities:

Declaration of substances with unusual low legal thresholds such as PFOA

The inclusion of the chemical group perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), its salts and PFOA precursor compounds into Annex I of the EU Regulation 2019/1021 (POP-Regulation) intends to eliminate the use of all PFOA related substances in the EU as of July 4, 2020. The POP Regulation is the EU transposition of the UN Stockholm Convention and has replaced the former restriction of PFOA under the Annex XVII of the REACH-Regulation.

The IMDS Steering Committee would like to remind you that the IMDS reporting thresholds vary depending on the substance and / or the legal requirements and is not always at 0.1% w/w.

By definition, suppliers are obliged to always consult the Global Automotive Declarable Substance List (www.gadsl.org) to understand the correct substance specific values.

We request you to check compliance of your IMDS data because in case of PFOA, this legal threshold is unusually low at 25 ppb.

If necessary, we request you to update your IMDS data accordingly and to get into contact with your customers, immediately.

GM has put together more information for their suppliers. You can find the revised GM IMDS Instructions manual for GM suppliers in the section "OEM Specific Information".

Additionally, please be informed, that effective 17th August 2020, GM will reject all Material Data Sheets submitted to GM using the modules published under Recommendation IMDS-019 for electronic and electric components used in the production of vehicles. GM will not be rejecting for service parts for legacy vehicles at this time. General Motors encourages all suppliers to submit IMDS data according to Rec. IMDS 001 for electronic components and materials at all levels of the supply chain. Under special circumstances, suppliers will be required to submit “Supplier Declaration Form for IMDS-Rec019” outlining the declaration and timing for resubmission of IMDS without IMDS Rec 019 modules. The “Supplier Declaration Form for IMDS-Rec019” is not an authorization for the change of a part or component. Any changes to parts or components must be authorized through the GM Engineering Work Order (EWO) process. No waiver will be approved if it creates a condition of non-compliance with legal requirements.

With IMDS Release 12.2, the handling for Application Codes was changed insofar, that a default value is no longer automatically preselected. A value needs to be actively selected when attaching a material MDS to a component MDS. The handling was changed because the default selection sometimes was not the appropriate one, but the user was not aware, that a selection can be made (i.e. changing the default value to the correct one). With the now necessary active selection, the data quality is expected to be improved because the user must select a value rather than just confirming a preset value. In the FAQ “Is there any further explanation as to how to select an Application ID?” this handling is further explained.
