To take full responsibility for all aspects concerned with the car use (usage, discard, disposal etc.) in terms of all legislation demands, the world´s manufactures of Audi, BMW, Daimler Chrysler, Ford, Opel, Volvo and VW brands established the IMDS project as a result of their common research and development activities.

IMDS is an electronic system based on the internet technology communicating with the centre database administered by the EDS company.

The system facilitates an efficient data exchange between the particular suppliers of the materials employed in the cars and enables to share their description and composition.

This becomes a very efficient tool for all abovementioned companies and subsuppliers of the parts in the automotive industry to standardize their products and processes.

The list of most relevant processes supplied by the Pragochema and commonly demanded by the IMDS users are in the following table. If other data or specifications of other processes are required contact the Pragochema´s Dept. of Technical Service at the e-mail address
