Ready to gain a better understanding of the reporting requirements and regulations impacting your daily business? Join us on October 11–12 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan — or virtually via Zoom — for our 2022 IMDS & Product Chemical Compliance Conference.

How the IMDS Data Structure Is Changing to Accommodate Future Sustainability Requirements (i.e., Digital Passport), 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.


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 into reporting requirements and regulations that are impacting your day-to-day business.

This year’s event features a range of session subjects and formats, including an OEM/supplier panel moderated by BCubed Consulting President and Founder Brenda Baney. Featuring speakers including Mayrie Eckermann (Cummins, Inc.); Doris Hill (General Motors Company); Yusuf Williams (Harman Automotive Division); Timo Unger (Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Center GmbH); Pam Carey (Molex LLC); and Jim Raymond (Toyota Motor North America), this panel will cover current topics including:
