●About other laws and regulations

REACH Regulation(*2) went into effect in June 2007 in Europe. It is examined to add new substances of concern to existing RoHS Directive and ELV Directive. Countries promote the strengthening of laws and regulations, so regulated substances are assumed to increase in the future. Therefore, Industry associations and each company have implemented the development and the update of the Green Procurement Standards.
Heretofore our company reduces and monitors chemical substances which are expected to be regulated, grasping the details of raw material of rubber sheet. For some general –purpose products, our company doesn't use purposely the following chemical substances which are expected to be regulated in the future.

・PCB: Polychlorobiphenyl.
・PFOA: Perfluorooctanoic acid and its salts.
・PFOS:Perfluorooctane sulfonates.
・Asbestos.
・HBCD:Hexabromocyclododecane.
・Deca-BDE:Decabromodiphenyl ether.
  • For substances of very high concern (SVHC) under the REACH regulation, substances are added approximately once every six months.
    Please consult us as it is necessary to investigate whether it is compatible or not with each update.
