System for the Promotion of Compliance

Basic Concepts

Various laws and regulations—related to aspects such as product quality, transactions, the environment, labor, safety, hygiene, accounting standards, and taxes—apply to the KOKUYO Group as we go about our business activities. We enacted the KOKUYO Group Code of Conduct, which is to be observed by all employees, so that we comply with laws and regulations, and carry out business activities in accordance with social ethics. KOKUYO is working on building a compliance system and its adherence through spreading the KOKUYO Group Code of Conduct.
