Materials Declaration Management Standard
|Publication Date:||1 June 2020|
This standard establishes the requirements for exchanging material and substance data between suppliers and their customers for electrical and electronic products and other products. This standard applies to products, components, subproducts, complex objects, articles, materials, mixtures and substances that are supplied to producers for incorporation into their products. It covers materials, mixtures and substances that may be present in the supplied product, subproduct, complex object or article. It does not apply to process chemicals, unless those process chemicals constitute part of the finished product, sub-product, complex object or article.
This standard is intended to benefit suppliers and their customers by providing consistency and efficiency to the material declaration process. It establishes standard electronic data exchange formats that will facilitate and improve data transfer along the entire global supply chain.
This standard includes new functionality which enables reporting different products with different declaration classes in the same XML file. The standard also enables the supplier to use subproducts in a Class D XML to report articles in the complex object provided that the XML file includes declarations for the subproducts. The sub-products can be declared using different declaration classes.
