The Yokogawa Group is committed to working with its supply chain to ensure that its products are in compliance with environmental health and safety (EHS) regulations such as the REACH regulation. Towards this end, the Yokogawa Group has established a chemical substance management system and has begun conducting surveys of the parts and materials used in its products.
The European Union's Regulation No. 1907/2006 on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) came into force on June 1, 2007. Yokogawa Electric Corporation is fully aware of its obligations with regard to the REACH regulation, and is continuously working with suppliers to ensure that all of its products are in compliance.
