Provision of information for the proper handling of chemical products

For all Zeon products, we provide Safety Data Sheet (SDS) that record GHS1 classification results, product safety performance, and cautions for handling.
For a portion of products, we disclose safety-related information in the form of safety abstracts, which are released on the GPS/JIPS2 website (ICCA GPS Chemicals Portal Site).

  • 1. GHS
    Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.
  • 2. GPS/JIPS (Global Product Strategy/Japan Initiative of Product Stewardship)
    GPS is a new voluntary initiative related to the management of chemicals promoted by the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA). In Japan, JCIA promotes GPS under the name JIPS and is calling for all member companies to participate.

Participation in voluntary activities by the chemical industry

Zeon provides financial support for research activities by the LRI3involving chemical substance toxicity surveys, safety evaluations, and environmental impact surveys. As a member of the Far East Section of the IISRP4, Zeon also participates in the survey and investigation of environmental issues and the promotion of countermeasures.
