Today, based on the current planning of HPE, the IMDS Steering Committee confirmed that the IMDS Chemistry Manager function (not activated with IMDS Release 11.0 on 12th/13th November 2016) will be rolled out on the IMDS Production server during the weekend 14th/15th January 2017.
At the end of this month, on 30th November 2016, the following three substances will be deactivated/hidden in IMDS:
|CAS Nr.||Name||Proposed action||Comments|
|109-72-8||Butyllithium||Delete||User requested the addition of this substance in error - they have since confirmed it is not used in their product|
|63918-97-8||Lead styphnate||Hide and use Replace function to direct Users to the current CAS for this substance - 15245-44-0||This is a superseded CAS - no longer valid|
|Lead, bis(carbonato(2-))dihydroxytri||Hide and use Replace function to direct Users to the current CAS for this substance - 1319-46-6||This is a superseded CAS - no longer valid|
IMDS Release 11.0 was rolled out during this week-end of November 12th/13th, 2016.
However, the IMDS Chemistry Manager module had to be deactivated for this rollout so that this functionality is not available yet within IMDS Release 11.0.
We were forced to take this step during the rollout as precaution measure in order to ensure IMDS Release 11.0 will be available on time as announced and regular IMDS operations will not be further impacted.
Of course we are working to resolve the occurred issues so that we can activate the IMDS Chemistry Manager as soon as possible. We will keep you informed.

On 15th April 2016, the latest GADSL update will be implemented in IMDS incorporating the following changes to the IMDS basic substance list:
New GM-specific supplier information
GM is updating GMW3059 and its related List of Restricted and Reportable Substances, CG4110.
Please be aware that this will change GM’s IMDS acceptance criteria.
GM will immediately stop accepting any IMDS entries containing
- DecaBDE (CAS# 1163-19-5),
- HBCD (CAS# 25637-99-4, 3194-55-6) and/or
- LCPFAC/PFOA’s (CAS# 3825-26-1, 335-95-5, 335-67-1),
unless a GMW3059 waiver form is provided together with the IMDS submission, stating the purpose for use and the suppliers plan to eliminate use, including the phase out timing. Any such waivers cannot be in conflict with any regional regulatory requirements for which the products are sold.
GM is encouraging its suppliers to double check internally that the submitted IMDS data represents the current content of the parts delivered to GM.
GM appreciates your efforts and support in this important matter.
Renault updated its supplier information in the Help category "OEM Specific Information".
The security and confidentiality of the IMDS system is not affected
IMDS using companies remain responsible for their usage of data obtained from IMDS
Finally, please understand that we at HPE continue to care for IMDS system security, while you as the users remain responsible for secure IMDS data handling, i.e. to ensure the data is sent only to solutions that meet the required criteria.
With IMDS Release 10.0, a check was introduced for MMDSs containing warnings. These could no longer be published, because, in the case of publishing, all warnings would automatically be converted into errors. Due to special cases for some of the material suppliers, this check will be deactivated on 10th March 2016. However, Warning-free MMDSs are treated as “Preferred MMDSs” and the GUI (entry fields etc.) will not be changed.
SAIC GM put together more instructions for their suppliers. More information can be found under FAQ - OEM-specific Info - SAIC GM.
