Submitting Material Declarations

Click here to view this material in Chinese


MBG asks that Suppliers provide Material Declarations in the form of IPC 1752A XML, PDF or XDP file. While suppliers can use any tool to generate these files, MBG recommends the use of the IPC Creator tool to generate your Material Declarations. Detailed training material for the IPC Creator tool is available


Any valid IPC 1752A Class D (homogeneous material) declaration generated from another tool is also acceptable. MGB also accepts Material Declarations in the form of IPC 1752-2  XML, PDF or XDP


These forms do not support the new RoHS exemptions, and do not support the use of multiple exemptions


  1. As noted above, files should be submitted in XML, XDP or PDF format only. Files should be submitted to the email address

  2. Any Material Declarations received which contain errors will generate an email back to the Supplier. Contained in the email will be a list of any and all errors encountered when the file was received. Explanations of all errors can be viewed in the related Error Code spreadsheet and Error Code spreadsheet in Chinese

  3. Supporting Information and the FAQ is available on the Motorola Mobility Material Disclosure website
