Description on how to submit MDSs to Ford Motor Company



In January 2016 Ford will replace its internal IMDS data management system (GMIR and GMIR Supplier Portal) with an all new Global Materials Management system (GMM). The current automatic IMDS datasheet acceptance will be replaced with an upfront data acquisition and data quality analysis.

Please see document for more details.

How do I Certify for Ford?

If you have a Client Manager or User 3 profile, you will be able to see the Ford-Certification Option on the left side of the window. This option is used to fulfill Ford's requirement that suppliers annually certify their products according to Ford's Restricted Substance Management Standard (RSMS).

From the Main Menu:
a) Select Ford Certification
b) Read and check the RSMS Certification Statement
c) Add your Ford parent GSDB Code and check on the box I agree and Certify
d) Click on Accept

The certification receipt screen can be printed using the printer icon on the top of the screen.
