Control of Chemical Substances Used in Products

In recent years, governments worldwide have tightened regulations relating to the reduction or control of chemical substances.

Based on the Control Rules for Environment-Related Substances Used in Products, which was formulated in reference to the chemical substance-related laws and regulations enforced in countries across the world, Olympus conducts surveys in the product design and development stages and also in its procurement activities to ensure that its products do not contain environment-related substances.

In fiscal 2014, we implemented measures to respond appropriately to application of the RoHS Directive to medical devices, which was started in July 2014.
