Our specialisms

Product Enviromental Compliance
Management

Our experienced specialists provide expert support to ease you through the complex decision-making processes involved in environmental data reporting and materials data management. If you work in procurement, quality, or R&D, you will have to deal with a wide range of guidelines, regulations, and requirements relating to materials and product conformity. We can provide senior management and those responsible for product compliance with all the information they need to make the right decisions. We pride ourselves on our responsiveness and will get back to you quickly whether you are in the early stages of a project or working through a critical phase. We would also welcome the opportunity to discuss with you the benefits of our process management services which we can provide on an ongoing basis.

The International Material Data System (IMDS) is the global standard for materials reporting in the automotive sector. The IMDS allows you to enter materials data quickly and securely to ensure your company complies with the End-of-Life Vehicles Directive (ELV). As a specialist IMDS services company, we offer a comprehensive range of services to support your compliance needs. You can call on us to deal with a wide range of IMDS-related tasks. We can handle materials research, IMDS data entry (IMDS listing), materials data maintenance, and IMDS data checking. What’s more, we can provide high-quality training for your employees and work directly with your suppliers and customers to ensure all your reporting tasks and processes are managed efficiently.

China has launched its own web-based platform for managing product data in the automotive industry. This is known as CAMDS (China Automotive Material Data System). It aims to ensure that manufacturers, suppliers, and importers comply with recycling and reuse requirements for automotive products listed in the CHINA ELV. CAMDS is a materials data system that has almost the same functionalities as the IMDS. It is based on version 7.0 of the IMDS but is designed and used in a slightly different way.

REACH is the EU chemicals regulation and stands for “Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals”. The European chemicals regulation aims to ensure that manufacturers and importers take responsibility for the safe handling of chemical substances  and take this into account in material reporting. We support you with questions on REACH compliance, SVHC and the CLP Regulation/GHS Regulation.

The aim of the SCIP database is to help waste management companies identify and recycle articles that contain substances that are harmful to the environment or human health. Its long-term goal is to find substitutes for Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs). Information in the SCIP database is also available to consumers so that they can take sustainability into account when making purchases. Meeting SCIP reporting obligations can be very challenging for many businesses. But there’s no need to struggle alone. We can provide expert advice and a range of professional services that will make these challenges a thing of the past.

CDX

Products must comply with countless legal requirements regarding their composition in every country and every industry. This is where the CDX System from DXC Technology comes in. It simplifies procedures so you can ensure you are complying with product compliance regulations, which in turn protects people and our environment, prevents waste, and improves recycling. Materials reporting is carried out across the entire supply chain and is constantly updated. This makes it increasingly difficult to maintain product compliance. The CDX system provides simplified solutions to help you keep on top of your compliance obligations.

REACH/RoHS compliance primarily affects manufacturers and importers of electrical and electronic equipment. Numerous exemptions, which are permitted as special national regulations and are subject to change, complicate implementation. imds professional will be happy to advise you on all questions regarding compliance with the RoHS Directive and help you with the RoHS Declaration of Conformity. Engage our experts if you want to optimise internal processes and efficiently improve your data quality or outsource RoHS tasks.
