Sumitomo Riko specifies chemical substances to be managed in light of laws and regulations of various countries and customers' requirements. It determines which chemical substances are subject to management based on the EU's ELV Directive*1, the RoHS Directive*2, REACH*3, laws and regulations in Japan, GADSL*4, and IEC62474*5. To ensure that all our products are free of chemical substances subject to control, we strictly adhere to all the rules concerning each department's role and the application procedures, monitor the substances contained in our products, and are making efforts concerning information disclosure.
Sumitomo Riko exports materials, parts and finished products from Japan to the Group's production sites overseas. With the cooperation of suppliers and importers, we endeavor to ensure full compliance with applicable regulations such as the EU REACH Regulations (2008), China's Measures for the Administration of Registration of Hazardous Chemicals (2012), and the US TSCA*6 (revised in 2016).
