International Material Data system

Global Automotive Declarable Substance List (GADSL) was developed by the Global Auto Stake-holders, to assure environmental and health regulation compliance. GADSL was introduced to simplify reporting throughout the supply chain by reducing multiple lists to one. GADSL developed a globally harmonized list and a process for complying with multiple declarable substance and end-of-life regulations. GADSL includes only substances expected to be present in a material or part in a vehicle at point of sale.

IMDS (International Material Data System) is an internet-based system which is used to track the materials in vehicles.
