On June 10, 2022 there was an update on the REACH Candidate List by ECHA. With this Candidate List update only one substance was added as an SVHC. The IMDS Basic Substance List has been assessed and as the substance is not in IMDS, it still correlates with the REACH Candidate List. Therefore, there is no SVHC Update required in IMDS.
The following Recommendations have been revised and will be valid from 1st September 2022: IMDS001, IMDS007, IMDS008, IMDS011, IMDS012 and IMDS019. The new versions are available in IMDS under Help -> Recommendations.
Although validity of the new version starts 1st September 2022, it is highly recommended to comply with the new rules as early as possible.

Since the changes in the SC90 checks with IMDS Release 13.2, there are more Warnings for Iron/Nickel alloys in classification 1.1.2 stating that more than 38% of Nickel is contained and another classification should be chosen. This is due the fact that the limit for Nickel in classification 3.4 was lowered to 38%. On Wednesday, 11th May 2022, we will roll out a change that Nickel with more than 38% is allowed in classification 1.1.2.

On 03-May-2022 the current IMDS server SSL certificate will be replaced with a new version.
This is a routine change that occurred every second year in the past and will occur yearly in the future, reflecting the industry consensus to raise security by granting shorter lifespans to SSL certificates. If your company does not employ certificate pinning (https://www.digicert.com/dc/blog/certificate-pinning-what-is-certificate-pinning/) in its perimeter security setup, you do not need to do anything as the new certificate will simply work transparently for you, just like the old one. But if your company does employ certificate pinning, you need to validate the new certificate before 03-May-2021.
You can download the new certificate within the next few days here:
