No department is more aware of customer requirements than the quality department. This is why quite often the quality department is tasked with International Material Data System (IMDS) reporting. For every manufactured part, a Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) must be completed. PPAP can only be completed if there has been an accepted IMDS report. 

IMDS reporting can be a difficult task without also understanding the product compliance regulations. It is extremely important that all in the supply chain report accurate information. IMDS is in place to ensure that materially our products meet all the product compliance and recyclability regulations globally.
