The announcement of the IMDS Steering Committee concerning this change can be dowloaded here.
Summary of IMDS Release 3.2 changes for maintaining missing applications:
The change basically refers to material datasheets containing references of own modules or own material datasheets with application relevant substances. These own MDS/Module references (with missing applications) must be exchanged by a new version. This does not affect the possibility to add applications for references of foreign datasheets (… containing application relevant substances) when sending the MDS to an OEM.
