International Material Data System (IMDS) Participation

PennEngineering® is a registered user of the International Material Data System (IMDS). The IMDS archives and maintains information on materials that are used to manufacture vehicles. This materials database will facilitate the recycling of old vehicles in the future. In addition, the IMDS is used to demonstrate vehicle compliance to End-of-Life (ELV) Directive (2000/53/EC). The IMDS is a joint effort between the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers. For a listing of these companies and more information on the IMDS, go too
