From RFQ to PPAP order
A RFQ comes usually with a technical requirement or a functional specification. When this TR or FS makes reference to the STD 100-0006 / STD 100-0007, material & substance composition reporting is required:
Reference to STD 100-0006 indicates that a MDS is needed.
Reference to STD 100-0007 indicates that a STIC is needed.
A PVR is most of the time attached to the TR/FS or represents itself the TR/FS. The reference to STD 100-0006 and STD-100-0007 is indicated as shown below:

The required level of reporting might be different (STIC or MDS) but in both cases, it is important to start collecting information as soon as possible. Actually, the “official” demand from VOLVO will come at the PPAP order but then the Tier 1 supplier will only have 3 weeks to meet the requirement (Maximum delay; might be shorter see paragraph 1.1). It might take longer to the Tier 1 supplier to get the necessary information from his sub-suppliers.
As specified in paragraph 3.4 Cascading of reporting to Sub-tier Suppliers, Tier 1 suppliers can choose the best way to communicate with their suppliers and are responsible for collecting the correct information.
