Why Do We Use IMDS? How Will It Impact You?

2017 AIAG IMDS Summit explores the impact and application
Sep 6, 2017 5:00 PM ET

This year’s IMDS & Product Chemical Compliance Conference addresses those questions and many more, with a focus on the evolution of the International Material Data System (IMDS), and the specific reasons we use this global reporting tool. A member of the IMDS Steering Committee will be onsite to share further information on new enhancements for IMDS.

Important information on new topics such as GLAPS, full material disclosure and cross-industry reporting, OEM dismantling challenges, the importance of data quality, how small companies manage IMDS, and updates to Chemistry Manager round out a packed agenda.

To build upon last year’s discussions, both days kick off with a 30-minute basic IMDS training session, and Thursday includes a 30-minute conflict minerals training sessions, as well.

One of AIAG’s most popular annual conferences, the IMDS & Product Chemical Compliance Conference allows attendees significant time for panel discussions, Q&A, networking, touring exhibits, and a reception at the close of Day One
