Join us for the 2022 Hybrid IMDS & Product Compliance Conference
scheduled for October 11–12, 2022, at Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan. This always-popular event will cover global legislative issues and IMDS topics.

The theme for this year’s conference is How the IMDS Data Structure is Changing to Accommodate Future Sustainability Requirements (i.e. Digital Passport). Building on the last 20-plus years of effort leading North American automotive communities to develop and improve chemical and material data collection, regulatory compliance, and reporting, it’s time for us to move forward to face new challenges of responding to more stringent regulatory requirements and greener initiatives for a sustainable future in the circular economy era.


Presentations will include:

  • REC019 updates
  • Impacts from the Chemical Strategy of Sustainability, including the battery directive and the digital passport
  • IMDS updates, including what’s new in version 13.2 and what’s coming in version 14.0
  • Updates on ELV, REACH, and IMDS data quality from the IMDS Steering Committee
  • More in-depth information on TSCA, PIP (3:1), and PFAS
  • Updates on supplier activities from JAPIA & CLEPA
  • AIAG committee updates
  • Sustainability topics
  • and much more!

Whether you are new to IMDS or an experienced user, we have a session for you. By attending this conference, you will gain greater insight on reporting requirements and regulations that are impacting your day-to-day business.


This year we welcome you to join our annual must-attend event either in-person or virtually. While all attendees will get updates on the latest IMDS and global chemical regulations, in-person attendees also get:
