My customer is asking for a CDX submission — how do I get started?
The best way to get started is through education and training. There are multiple resources directly on the CDX website or you could consider taking Tetra Tech’s hands-on, online CDX Training.
I supply the same product to multiple industries and my data is already in IMDS. My non-automotive customer is requesting a CDX submission. Can’t they just register in IMDS and get my data from there?
What regulations or substance of concern lists does CDX help me comply with?
CDX can support you in meeting a variety of regulations:
CDX can also support conflict minerals reporting, SCIP database reporting and customer-specific requirements.
Does CDX have a way to send data requests to suppliers?
Yes. A user can use the MDS Request feature to request data from suppliers. Requests can be made to both registered and unregistered suppliers. Unregistered suppliers will receive an email with registration details. Bulk requests can be made to registered suppliers.
My customer sent me a request for CDX and requires FMD. What does that mean?
FMD stands for full material declaration or 100% declaration. FMD will provide your customer with the necessary details to determine compliance. It is likely your customer will not have to request additional information from you when regulations, exemptions or substances of concerns change year after year. FMD requires the disclosure of each homogenous material used in your product and each material’s substance composition. If you have concerns regarding proprietary formulations, CDX has options for marking substances as confidential.
How do I know if my product is compliant?
Unfortunately, CDX cannot tell you whether or not a product is compliant; it will still require due diligence and compliance expertise. However, CDX does include multiple options to help the user evaluate compliance. These options include data checks identifying warnings and errors, where-used analysis reports, and data filtering for specific regulations and substance lists.
Is CDX free?
