The material reporting fulfilment (either by STIC or by MDS) has to be done within 3 weeks after the request and at least 2 weeks before the planned PPAP approval date. Depending on the part, the delay to fulfil the material reporting request might be less than 3 weeks but the reporting will still have to be fulfilled 2 weeks before PPAP. This highlights the need to start collecting substances data as soon as possible to be able to answer quickly to the demand. Material reporting checking and validation by Volvo will be done within 2 weeks after reception. If the reporting is rejected, the Tier 1 supplier shall modify and resend it at least 2 weeks before PPAP.
