Our Thinking About Chemicals Management

Management of Chemical Substances in Products

As a system for preventing and controlling exposure to hazardous substances in products that threaten human health and the environment, in 2004 TDK introduced the Environmental Product Quality Management system and put it to work in our Quality Management System (QMS). For details regarding this initiative, please see here.

Management of Chemical Substances in Manufacturing Processes

We have been promoting the integrated management of chemical substances globally with the goals of understanding the hazardousness and danger of chemical substances, and improving safety in their handling in compliance with each nation's laws and the like.

Background of Goals (Management of Chemical Substances in Manufacturing Processes)

At TDK, we are moving forward on reducing the use and emissions of chemical substances in order to reduce their impact on the environment as well as mitigate the health risks to employees and risks of fires or explosions.

Fiscal 2022 Goals and Achievements / Evaluations and Future Activities (Management of Chemical Substances in Manufacturing Processes)

Fiscal 2022 Goal Achievement
Promote the integrated management of chemical substances globally and raise awareness in-house about the situation surrounding regulated chemical substances in the future We formulated uniform guidelines on the use of chemical substances. We also began to create a system for teaching development engineers about the management of chemical substances.

Evaluations and Future Activities

In order to further improve our management of chemical substances, we are preparing to formulate uniform guidelines on the use of chemical substances.
Thanks to the results achieved by the initiatives undertaken in each Business Group, development work has been proceeding on products that do not include hazardous substances and processes that do not use such.
Looking ahead, we will encourage keeping chemical substances in mind from manufacturing as a starting point by providing education for development engineers and creating a system for providing information.

Fiscal 2023 Goal
Promote the integrated management of chemical substances globally and raise awareness in-house about the situation surrounding regulated chemical substances in the future
