Material Description. This specification, and the associated CG4110, provides the GM requirements regarding substances whose use in materials and components have been identified by one or more governing bodies as being a potential risk to human health or the environment and/or are subject to current or anticipated regulatory restrictions.
The purpose of this specification is to facilitate compliance with current and future substance-related regulations. This standard does not supersede the responsibility of suppliers to comply with all laws and regulations.
Global Automotive Declarable Substance List (GADSL). The GADSL is incorporated into this specification and CG4110, by reference.

The GADSL only covers substances that are expected to be present in a material or part that remains in a vehicle at point of sale. The GADSL is available at www.gadsl.org.
