OEM Specific Information
Volvo Car Corporation
As a supplier to Volvo Cars, we would like to inform you that we are making a supplier code change in the process regarding reporting IMDS to Volvo Cars.
Currently when sending in an IMDS sheet to Volvo Cars, you are first asked to enter the parent code for your company. You then have the option to also enter the site code (the manufacturing site). If you did not enter the site code, the datasheet would be valid for all your manufacturing sites.
This will be changed as of 3rd of May 2018. After the change, you will be required to only enter the site code into the supplier code entry field. If a datasheet is valid for several of your manufacturing sites, you will need to send an individual copy of the datasheet to Volvo Cars for each manufacturing site.
If you have questions about your site code, please contact your responsible purchaser at Volvo Cars.
