Plans are heating up for the 2022 IMDS & Product Compliance Conference — and we’re excited to announce you can attend virtually or in person. Scheduled for October 11–12, 2022, attendees will convene at Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan.


For those who cannot attend in person, no worries! Choose from two virtual options: Live (via Zoom) with access to on-demand recordings after the event or Live (via Zoom) only.


While all attendees will receive updates on the latest IMDS and global chemical regulations, in-person attendees also get:

  • Additional training both days in IMDS and conflict minerals reporting templates
  • Networking and connecting with industry leaders and professionals
  • Learning about the latest innovations from our sponsors and exhibitors
  • Recordings of all the sessions on demand after the event
  • And most important, our always popular networking reception

This always-popular event will cover global legislative issues and IMDS topics. Titled “How the IMDS Data Structure is Changing to Accommodate Future Sustainability Requirements (i.e. Digital Passport), we will build on the last 20-plus years of helping North American automotive communities develop and improve chemical and material data collection, regulatory compliance, and reporting.


Now, it’s time 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. And 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.
