Just so you know, IDIS is a central repository of ‘Manufacturer Compiled Information’ which is used by 25+ global manufacturers from over 40 countries across Europe and Asia. Proudly, the Tata Nexon is the first Indian car to join this elite group. Tata Motors will provide all relevant information for responsible vehicle handling, starting with information about draining automotive fluids, the neutralization of airbags and seat belt tensioners and all the way up to the dismantling of components containing particularly hazardous substances.
This will now enable the Indian Authorised Vehicle Scrapping Facilities (AVSF) to undertake environmentally safe dismantling practices recommended by Tata Motors and implement them to work towards a cleaner environment. The publishing of the Tata Nexon ELV process on IDIS also complements the government’s initiative towards Vehicle scrappage policy & Automotive Industry Standards (AIS 129), contributing to the protection, preservation and improvement of the quality of the environment and energy conservation.
That’s not all though. Earlier, Tata Motors had established a proprietary International Material Data System (IMDS) where all suppliers mandatorily declare details of the material used for manufacturing vehicle components. It also releases design and system standards for recyclability and maintaining control over the usage of hazardous substances and material marking as part of Performance Attribute Targets (PAT) of Environment Management. With this achievement, Tata Motors hopes to reiterate its commitment towards making the entire life cycle of its products sustainable. Right from the development of ultra-low/zero-emission vehicles to responsible dismantling and recycling of the vehicle at the final ELV stage.
