CSR Committee

Recently, corporations are being required to comply with regulations concerning pollution control, reduced use of chemicals, and quality/environmental control as part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR).
JEOL organized a committee to address this issue in 2006. The CSR Committee, headed by the president and advised by JEOL’s attorney, meets quarterly. The committee’s purpose is to promote JEOL’s activities to continually improve and reinforce compliance, quality control, social contribution, corporate ethics, and risk management.

Environmental Regulations Committees

Environmental Regulations Committees have been established to handle issues of environmental regulations that apply to JEOL products, starting with the RoHS directive.
All departments related to products, including sales, development, design, procurement, manufacturing and service, participate and are working on legal compliance, Laws and regulations change over time.

To respond effectively to the laws and regulations in every country, we have established special committees within the Quality Assurance Division and are taking effective action. Every committee considers all items related to product technical regulations and the latest trends in laws.
Any provisions affecting the JEOL Group are discussed in the committee specializing in that area, and a review is quickly distributed among all concerned through the Quality Assurance Division.
