The TAIYO YUDEN Group has adopted its own Chemical Substances Control Standards. These standards define which substances are to be prohibited, reduced, and managed.
To tighten up control, we set up a chemical substances management structure specifying the persons in charge and their responsibilities.
|Prohibited substances||Cadmium, compounds containing cadmium, mercury, compounds containing mercury, hexavalent chromium compounds, etc.|
|Substances to be restricted||Lead in ceramic in capacitors, lead in ceramic or glass frit, dibutyltin compounds, etc.|
|Substances to be reduced||Toluene, REACH SVHC (substance of very high concern), xylene, etc.|
