Leveraging Supply Chain Data to Drive Success
The Compliance Landscape
Automotive manufacturers face numerous regulatory obligations that impact vehicles from the design stage through to end of life. The industry’s response to meeting these requirements is driven by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and suppliers are expected to align with established data standards such as the Global Automotive Declarable Substances List (GADSL) and the International Material Data System (IMDS). Non-compliance presents a range of risks, including loss of market access, fines or loss of contract.
The automotive supply chain contains thousands of parts, and the regulatory landscape is always evolving to create additional data requirements. High-quality, substance-specific part information must be efficiently communicated across the supply chain, requiring supplier education and engagement. Making this data available to engineering or design teams in a centralized location improves collaboration and enhances risk identification to better protect a company’s brand.
