Raw Material Introduction Process

Supplier Qualification

PPG is a global manufacturer of quality paints, coatings and related products to the automotive, industrial, aerospace and consumer markets. 
In order to meet our regulatory and sustainability goals, we require our suppliers to provide a standard set of information to be qualified and registered in our system, and to provide updated information on the products they provide to PPG. 

Product Qualification

The following information must be completed, reviewed and processed for a supplier to be qualified.  You must be invited or requested through a PPG sponsor:
  • PPG Raw Material Introduction Request (RMIR) form available in several languages

  • Safety Data Sheet (SDS) in English and local language of the ultimate receiving location (SDS must be current – most recently revised)
  • Technical Data Sheet (TDS)
  • Certificate of Analysis  

Training Resources 

Please refer to the following resources for training and guidance to make the qualification process easier:  
After processing, a PPG CHAMP code will be assigned by PPG raw material management team. 

Product Container Labeling

The CHAMP code must be included on your product container when it is delivered to the PPG using location.
There must be a visible hazard warning label that complies with hazard communication regulations of the country of ultimate destination such as the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) and in the required language.

Change Notifications   

The PPG-assigned CHAMP code must accompany updated information. 
The following changes must be communicated to PPG
  • Chemical Inventory Change - Suppliers must provide PPG with updated information without delay if there is a change in the chemical inventory status from the initial certification.
  • Product Composition Change - The most current (recently revised) Safety Data Sheet (SDS) must be provided promptly if there are any changes to the material composition.  The PPG-assigned CHAMP code must be associated with the material SDS and provided to the final shipping destination.
