What is IMDS really?


In the IMDS (International Material Data System) all materials used in the automobile
industry are archived and maintained, and on this basis a material data sheet is compiled
by naming all the materials and proprietary components pertaining to the part, as well as
including all the essential data necessary for the later recycling of the vehicle part.

The IMDS is a joint development of Audi, BMW, Daimler-Chrysler, Ford, Opel, Porsche,
Volkswagen and Volvo.  Further automobile manufacturers have since joined the

Car manufacturers and suppliers are obliged to hand over data by national and
international laws, standards, norms and regulations.

Should one of our suppliers not be in the position to provide us with IMDS data for the
components or materials delivered, then he is obligated to inform us about it and provide
us with comparably detailed data (weight proportions, CAS-numbers, etc) for the individual
substances of content.
