Automotive Compliance Reporting

Navigate complex industry regulations with confidence.


The automotive industry and its suppliers must meet demanding data quality requirements by reporting chemical and substance-level data to keep products compliant and on the market.

  • Requirements From Regulatory Authorities
    Companies in the automotive industry must meet requirements from governmental entities, often with shifting regulations and aggressive deadlines. These include EU REACH, SCIP, Conflict Minerals and RoHS.
  • Requirements From OEMs
    Regulatory and quality requirements also come from customers and are sometimes even more demanding than those from regulatory authorities.
  • Chemicals Reporting
    Regulatory reporting in automotive involves collecting chemical product data, both for what you manufacture and what you obtain from your suppliers. Your access to the market depends on your accurate reporting.

Prepare for IMDS Release 13.0

A new and enhanced version of IMDS is planned for launch on March 10, 2021, with IMDS Release 13.0. This new version adds new features, deactivates others and offers additional functions such as compatibility with SCIP database compliance reporting. Recommendation 019 use will also be terminated, which will require users who submitted electronics components to re-think their approach to compliance.
These changes can and will impact your future IMDS reporting. Tetra Tech will be creating an IMDS Release 13.0 Certification Training, which will be available online starting March 10, 2021; email us for pre-registration. It is important to understand how and to what extent now to make preparations — and to keep your products on the global market. Learn more about the release, and contact our IMDS experts with questions, concerns or needs at IMDS@tetratech.com or 734-546-5674.
