Automotive Industry and International Material Data System (IMDS)

The Electronic Components and Systems Division and PCB and Electronic Systems Division within the ZVEI have developed an efficient concept for the Material Data Declaration of Electronic Components, Printed Circuit Boards and Ceramic Microcircuits. The Material Data Declaration can be created by forming cross-company product groups with typical values. These Material Data Sheets, so-called Umbrella Specifications, greatly simplify the declaration without any noticeable loss of accuracy.

The IMDS Steering Committee published a letter on February 10, 2020 at IMDS-System regarding the Recommondation 019. In this letter it is announced that the pubished datasheeds in the Rec019 will lose validity on July 1, 2020.
