We established the Corporate Export Regulation Division, which is directly under the supervision of the president of Hitachi Construction Machinery, under this division, we also established Security Trade Control Dept. to comply with export control laws and regulations. We are implementing the management and oversight of export control items under the leadership of this division. In addition, the division conducts training and offers guidance to domestic and overseas group companies involved in exporting.

The liaison office of the Corporate Export Regulation Division conducts export control training twice a year for employees working at the head office and plants. In addition, general rank-specific training for newly-hired employees, newly-appointed managers and assistant managers also included training on export control.

The liaison office of the Corporate Export Regulation Division also provides the same training to employees at group companies.
