Environmental Audits

Environmental Audits

The domestic multi-site(use the cursor to view definition) environmental management system received an inspection, in accordance with the ISO 14001: 2004 version, for the eleventh time following the acquisition of multi-site certification in August 2005. Since fiscal 2013, sales locations have been introducing remote audits using teleconferencing systems to achieve greater audit efficiency.  The periodical environmental internal audit was performed to check that the JAE Group’s environmental management system complies with requirements, and is effectively implemented and maintained.  Environment quality audits are also carried out to monitor the control of chemical constituents in the JAE Group’s product designs and manufacturing processes.

●Results of ISO 14001 audit
In fiscal 2016, the ISO 14001 certification of JAE’s environmental management system was renewed. Based on the ISO 14001: 2004 standard, the entire system was audited for compliancy, effectiveness, and appropriateness within the scope of certification. JAE will continue to strive to further link environmental activities with its main business, aiming to make its activities even more effective and efficient.

●Results of periodical environmental internal audit
The fiscal 2016 periodical environmental internal audit was conducted with an emphasis on “the processes of identifying, referencing and adhering to legal requirements,” based on the previous audit’s results. The result of this audit found no serious non-compliance, but issues and points to evaluate that are common to the entire Group are shared horizontally, further raising the level of management. Going forward, we will review auditing procedures and methods so that we can incorporate the viewpoints of environmental performance and business process improvement.

Since fiscal 2015, we have introduced the JAMP -published Guidelines for the Management of Chemical Substances in Products check sheet, and conducted audits with a mutual assessment system using in-house environmental auditors. Results of the audit confirmed that flawed operations had been corrected.
