Materials Disclo​​sure Requirements​
To ensure compliance with international and customer requirements that prohibit or restrict the use of specific substances in products manufactured and/or sold by Cummins Inc. As such, Cummins requires its suppliers to comply to the CES 10903 standard which requires the disclosure of all substances present in materials and components where the substance is present is at or above the defined threshold value (weight percentages) in any homogenous layer or feature of the material. 


All materials and items shall conform to the restrictions on content of declarable list substances. A declarable list substance is a substance that is restricted and/or prohibited by one or more regulations which may be application and/or region specific. The supplier shall obtain written approval from Cummins for authorized use of declarable substances prior to source release of preproduction items and prior to PPAP of new/revised items.


Materials Disclosure Guide

We have developed Material Compliance System to collect and report the data to our customers and regulatory authorities. Through this system, we may have contacted you to provide full material disclosure for the parts supplied to various Cummins facilities.

Full material disclosures can be submitted using BOMCheck, CDX, the Anthesis template, or IMDS (for automotive applications only). For more details, refer to the related links section which contains the following items: a presentation describing the material compliance requirements of Cummins suppliers, the Anthesis template, and a step-by-step instruction guide on how to complete the Anthesis template.

Furthermore, suppliers may also be asked to provide Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS). Suppliers shall provide a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) that includes disclosure of the product's chemical and physical properties in a level of detail necessary to effectively protect our employees and the environment, as well as to support our efforts to comply with all applicable regulations and customer requirements
