Chemical Substance Management

i-PRO strictly observes domestic and foreign environmental regulations, selects chemical substances that have harmful effects on human health and the environment, and conducts production activities with consideration for safety and environmental impact.

■Chemical Substances Management Rank Guidelines
i-PRO publishes "Chemical Substance Management Rank Guidelines" that stipulate prohibited and controlled substances in products and factories, and requests suppliers to comply with them as necessary.

The "Chemical Substances Management Rank Guidelines (For Products)" prohibit the use of chemical substances (environmentally hazardous substances) contained in raw materials, parts, etc. that make up products manufactured and sold by i-PRO, and require management. The purpose of this is to clarify the substances that are considered hazardous substances, to ensure thorough awareness within our company and to our suppliers, and to improve the environmental quality of our products.

The “prohibited substances” and “controlled substances” specified in the “Chemical Substances Management Rank Guidelines (For Products)” correspond to the chemSHERPA control substances.
