  How do I start using the Conflict Minerals Declaration (CMD) Manager in CDX?

CDX employs a self-registration process. In the course of registration you will be asked to register your company and its first user. This first user will be considered the Company Administrator, and will then be responsible for managing the company record (name, address etc.) and creating and maintaining additional users for this company.

You will need an e-mail system that will not block e-mail from the CDX Server (cdx-mailer@dxc.com or cdx-info@dxc.com) or consider it junk or spam, as all login information is communicated through e-mail from the system itself.

The system requirements for browsers and versions that are supported with the CDX system can be found at here. Other browsers may be used but the support team does not support those browsers.

  Will I always find the latest version of the CMRT in the CDX system, and how often are the forms updated?

Yes. We always offer the latest CMRT version, as well as all previous versions. We apply the template to the CDX system as soon as a new version is confirmed and published.

  Can I work with older CMRT versions in the CDX system?

Yes. If you create a CMD you will be asked to select the CMRT version. When importing a template, the CMD Manager will automatically determine in which version the template was created.

  How do I use substance groups with regard to Conflict Minerals?

In CDX, you can manage Bill of Material (BOM) data for your products, in addition to the Conflict Minerals Manager. A Conflict Minerals group in CDX can be used for analysis if you have your BOM structure.

  How do I use the Conflict Minerals Group?

To examine the structure of an individual Material Data Sheet (MDS), use the pull down to see Conflict Minerals highlighted in the tree similar to REACH SVHC or RoHS. You may also use this group in Functions > Where Used Analysis > Basic Substance List to determine which parts contain Conflict Minerals so you can determine from which suppliers you may need further information.

  Is there a complete set of smelters in CDX?

CDX incorporates the RMI (formerly CFSI) Conflict-free compliant smelter lists, the RMI Active/Known smelter list, CDX-registered smelters, and supplier-reported smelters. CDX also identifies entities reported as smelters which have been found invalid. CDX provides the most comprehensive list of smelters currently available.

  Can I use the CMD Manager and CDX for Material Reporting simultaneously?

Yes. The CMD Manager is a module within the CDX system. Due to the different payment models, the CMD Manager and CDX for MDSs can be purchased and used separately. If a company wishes to operate both with the complete functionality, the company purchases an annual license for the CMD Manager and a license package for CDX MDSs.
