Home > Sustainability > Compliance


We consider that the essence of compliance is "To respond to social needs, including compliance with laws, social norms and ethics" and that compliance is not only an obligation as a member of society, but also earns the trust of society. For the company to benefit, this must be an essential element that is continuously improving.
Based on our position as a “chemical trading company that develops global business”, we are continuing to meet the social demands of our company as one of our top management priorities.

Compliance Promotion System

The director responsible for promoting compliance is selected from the officers. Under this initiative, the company system is established and operated to maintain and improve compliance.

Regarding the Chemical Substances Control Act, the Poison Ditch Act, the Pharmaceutical Equipment Act, and other domestic and foreign chemical and pharmaceutical industry related laws and security trade control, the establishment of a specialized control department and the implementation of a control system helps prevent violations in advance. We have such a system in place.

In addition to the management of insider information, secret information and personal information, internal hotlines and systems for eliminating anti-social forces, the focus of recent years has been on the United States Federal Overseas Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, etc. In order to meet anti-corruption requests, we have established a strict supplier screening process when recruiting agents and consultants who are typically pointed out as risks of bribery.

Formulation of compliance action guidelines

Whether a company can ensure compliance depends on the actions of each of its members, executives and employees.
Therefore, after repeated discussions across the company, the company formulated the “Compliance Action Guidelines” that show ten items in the internal and external decision / action guidelines which are distributed to all executives and employees in the form of booklets in which receipt is occasionally confirmed by telephone call.
