Question: In filling out the Aerospace and Defence Declarable Substances List (AD-DSL), do I need to report on chemicals used to process and clean the parts, or only those that are present in the completed parts themselves?
Answer: It depends on the requirements of your customers or internal stakeholders. While you aren’t always required to provide information about process chemicals or substances when completing the AD-DSL, if this information is available, it’s a good idea to include it. Ideally, you would identify the substance or substances used and where they are leveraged in process. Providing this information helps companies in the aerospace and defense industry understand potential supply chain disruptions if substances cannot be obtained in the future.
