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.
