  Can requests for Material Data Sheet (MDS) or Conflict Minerals Declaration (CMD) be sent to suppliers who are not registered in CDX?

With CDX you can send a request for a Material Data Sheet (MDS) or Conflict Minerals Declaration (CMD) to all your suppliers. These companies can be registered in CDX or they can be companies that have not registered in CDX.

When sending a request to a company that is not registered in CDX, you will provide the company information (name, country) and the Administrator contact information (name, phone number and e-mail address). Your supplier will receive an e-mail notification from CDX when the request has been sent. The e-mail text for a supplier who is not registered in CDX will include a link for them to register in CDX. In addition to the initial request e-mail, reminders will also be sent to the recipient of the request.

  If suppliers are not registered in CDX how can their data be entered into CDX?

Suppliers can respond to a customer¿s request by following the link in the CDX request e-mail and registering in CDX. Suppliers can also register in CDX from the CDX Login screen https://www.cdxsystem.com/cdx by selecting ¿Register your company¿.

When the supplier is registered in CDX, they can use the CDX system to enter their MDS or CMD information and send the MDS or CMD back to the requesting company.

Please note that there is no cost for your supplier to register and use CDX to create and send an MDS or CMD to their customers. A CDX license is needed to request and receive MDSs or CMDs from suppliers and integrate them into your own MDS or CMD.

For Conflict Minerals Declarations (CMDs), if your supplier does not register in CDX, but chooses to send you a CFSI Excel CMRT, you can easily import the CMRT into CDX and aggregate that information into your own CMD.

DXC highly recommends that suppliers register in CDX. CDX provides the highest level of data confidentiality and security. CDX provides the capability to manage and monitor the gathering of data, along with the traceability and communication mechanisms. CDX also provides automatic notification of regulation updates and maintains product information at a current state while reducing manual time and effort.
