Green Procurement

At USHIO, we have established Green Procurement Standards to guide material purchasing, and these standards are posted on our website. While complying with the RoHS directive and other laws and regulations specific to each country, we stipulate our own list of chemical substances with an environmental impact, and comply with both internal and external requirements relating to chemical substances contained in products.
We issue forms for self-assessment of standard compliance systems, and request that our business partners put in place an Environmental Management System (EMS).


ーWe revised the “GREEN PROCUREMENT STANDARDS”, “Chemical Substance Control Level Classification Table”, “Level 1 Prohibited Substances Report” and “RoHS10 Survey Report” in accordance with the review of prohibited substances and compliance with PFOA regulations, etc. "Guideline" was deleted.

USHIO plans to make additional revisions to our reporting requirements for suppliers with regard to SVHCs Stipulated by REACH Regulations each time the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) makes an announcement. USHIO may on occasion ask for reports before revisions are finished for all documentation.
