Register soon and join us at this year’s virtual 2021 IMDS & Product Chemical Compliance Conference on October 19–20, 2021: Transitioning From Compliance and Reporting to Sustainability.


Building on our last 20 years’ endeavors to lead North American automotive communities to develop and improve chemical and material data collection, regulatory compliance, and reporting, now it is time for us to move forward to face the new challenges of fulfilling more stringent regulatory requirements, integrating electronics materials reporting, and addressing the greener initiatives of sustainable future in the circular economy era.


You’ll hear detailed presentations on SCIP & IMDS REC019 requirements/challenges, impacts from the Chemical Strategy of Sustainability, and of course IMDS updates — what was new in version 13.0 and what’s coming next in the new version. We will hear an update from the IMDS Steering Committee on ELV, REACH, and IMDS data quality. Whether you are new to IMDS or an expert, we have a track for you. By attending this conference, you will be more insightful on reporting requirements and regulations that impact your day-to-day business and become more acquainted with transitioning from dealing with compliance and reporting to managing sustainability.
