The safe handling of chemicals is an important foundation underpinning the NAGASE Group’s businesses. At NAGASE, we continue to improve product-related compliance and centralized information management, including management of chemical products. All the products we deal in are subject to our management system. This allows us to comply properly with any laws or regulations that affect our products.

Responding to Global Chemical Laws and Regulations

The Strategic Approach to International Chemical Management (SAICM) adopted at the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development—also known as the Johannesburg Summit—is aimed at ensuring that, by the year 2020, chemicals are produced and used in ways that minimize significant adverse impacts on the environment and human health. In accordance with this policy, the entire world is adopting more strict and standardized regulations concerning chemical management. Accordingly, we anticipate global regulatory trends related to chemical management, working with our overseas subsidiaries to educate, provide instructions, and adopt product management systems. In this way, we facilitate the global management of information related to chemical substances to provide accurate, up-to-date information to our business partners.
