Conflict minerals: Refer to specific minerals and their derivatives mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and surrounding regions. Such mining activities have been identified as violating human rights such as the use of child labor and forced labor, as well as financing conflicts.
Audits and Improvements of Quality and Environment Management System
Tosei Engineering only trades with suppliers that we have assessed as having acquired ISO9001 and ISO14001 certification, or that operates compliant internal control systems. Those systems must be trustworthy, or alternatively suppliers must ensure that improvements and enhancements are implemented in accordance with instructions issued by the Procurement Department.
Every effort is being made to make improvements to the quality and environmental management of supply chains. Every year, several companies are audited and advised to make improvements or other changes, and if defects are found in procured parts, Tosei Engineering works with the supplier to take corrective action for the cause in their production processes, and assess the feasibility of preventive measures.
