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.

Initiatives for the Promotion of Compliance

Operation of a Whistle-blower System, KOKUYO Group Hotline

The KOKUYO Group Hotline is a hotline where employees can seek advice on problems related to compliance and corporate ethics that are difficult to counsel and resolve within the workplace. It is a global system that can be used not only by employees in Japan but also by the employees of the KOKUYO Group at overseas offices.

Continuously Holding Compliance Training at Overseas Group Companies

Continuously Holding Compliance Training at Overseas Group Companies

KOKUYO-IK (Thailand) Co., Ltd., which manufactures stationery products in Thailand, has continued to hold annual compliance trainings since 2013 with the goal of enhancing its employees' compliance awareness.

For companies planning to expand overseas business, the management structure in their overseas group companies is a major issue, and the development and propagation of compliance awareness in particular has become important. In order to continue complying with laws and regulations and carrying out business activities in accordance with social ethics, the KOKUYO Group plans to actively carry out training to promote compliance that is consistent with the local situation at its overseas sites.
