Component Disclosure Module
Automate Materials Compliance Management
Component Disclosure Module is an add-on module for GreenData Manager (GDM) Software for component manufacturers.
GreenData Manager with Component Disclosure Module (GDM w/ CDM) provides an automated solution to Full Material Declaration (FMD) data, the SCIP Database, automotive IMDS reporting, and customer requests for data.
Unique and challenging position within the supply chain
Component Manufacturers face a complex challenge as they need to provide their customers with regulatory data even though they themselves do not face the same regulatory requirements.
With Component Manufacturers supplying parts to customers from multiple industry segments, Component Manufacturers must be aware of and provide data for dozens of different regulations across many different industries.
The best way for Component Manufacturers to tackle this unique challenge is to provide their customers with Full Material Declaration (FMD) data. But you’ll also need a powerful tool to generate this data and manage your company’s materials database.
A comprehensive solution to manage materials database and generate FMD data
Plus, you can provide your customers with real-time compliance data right from your company website or portal. The downloadable data will automatically update when the substance data in your materials change.

Reduce the manual burden of fulfilling customer requests and tracking regulation changes
As regulations such as EU RoHS, EU REACH (including the SCIP database), California Proposition 65, EU POP, and others get changed and updated, your compliance team must continuously update and maintain your materials database.
And when customers come back with repeat requests for updated compliance declaration reports, the process of providing customers with data can seem unending.
Establishing an FMD database is the best practice for component manufacturers to reduce the burden of providing updated compliance declarations to customers when regulations are changed.
Instead of providing individual compliance declarations for each package or component, give your customers FMD data and eliminate the need to re-issue compliance declarations every time a regulation is updated.
GDM w/ CDM software can enable you to meet your data management goals while reducing your manual burden.
With GDM w/ CDM software, you’ll be able to:
• Organize the substance make-up data that you have collected from your materials suppliers into an easily managed FMD database,
• Maintain the database to deal with updates and changes,
• Keep up with constantly changing regulations,
• And generate component compliance data with FMD to provide to customers.
GDM w/ CDM Materials Database Features
GDM w/ CDM software allows you to establish your materials database with substance make-up data, and import your component make-up files or BOMs through a simple Excel import.
Once imported, FMD data on each package code or component part number can be generated and exported to Excel, GreenSoft proprietary XML, IPC-1752A XML and IEC 62474 XML formats.
GDM w/ CDM features include:
• Establish a company-wide material database with substance makeup data, and track the changes on every material.
• Propagate the changes to final FMD data on package codes or component part numbers.
• Data entry accuracy checks by examining the deviation of aggregation of substance weight versus material weight.
• Accessibility by multiple users that share the same material database with real-time changes and edits.
• Ability to customize the Excel template export files with your company logo, address and other information.
• Available for GreenData Manager (GDM) Workgroup and Desktop Editions.
Intelligent change management system
With GDM w/ CDM software, dealing with changes to substance data or materials becomes as easy as clicking a button.
The GDM w/ CDM intelligent change management system detects when the substance make-up file of a material changes, and a single click of a button will distribute that updated data throughout the database.
You can export FMD data for only the components or packages that use the changed material, instead of having to re-export the entire database and manually determine which files contain the change.
Automate the fulfillment of customer requests
GDM w/ CDM software allows component manufacturers to eliminate the process of fulfilling customer requests for compliance declarations completely.
FMD files exported from GDM w/ CDM software can be uploaded to your website to create a searchable online database for your customers or website visitors. When regulations change or customers needs new information, they can simply visit your website and obtain the necessary information themselves, preventing your team from getting fatigued by repeat customer requests for data.
Because of the intelligent change management system in GDM w/ CDM, when materials are changed, your website developers will only need to upload files for packages or components affected by the changes instead of having to update the entire FMD database.
