As stipulated in the Hitachi Construction Machinery Group Codes of Conduct (Chapter 5-5, Observance of Laws and Regulations Governing Imports and Exports), we shall comply with laws and regulations related to imports and exports, and widely contribute to sustaining international peace and safety through the implementation of export controls.
We established the Corporate Export Regulation Division, which is directly under the supervision of the president of Hitachi Construction Machinery, 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.
In FY2016, export control training was held two times, respectively, for head office employees and plant employees. Rank-specific training was held a total of seven times. Training for group company employees was carried out too. For overseas group companies, we developed original educational materials (Export Control Principles) in English and Chinese and are providing them to group companies.
In FY2017, we plan to provide various e-learning materials to domestic group companies, in addition to continuing to implement various other types of training.
Export control related departments at the head office and plants undergo audits by the liaison office of the Corporate Export Regulation Division once a year. Operational audits conducted by the audit offices of each domestic and overseas group company also include items related to export control.
Three domestic group companies and four overseas group companies are undergoing audits related to export control. Furthermore, domestic and overseas group companies are undergoing in-house audits by their own Corporate Export Regulation Division liaison offices.
Going forward, we plan to conduct proper export practices by continuing to carry out audits, mainly by the liaison office of the Corporate Export Regulation Division.
