Improving Management Quality

As a global enterprise, Hitachi High-Technologies has endeavored to establish and enhance management quality at a world-class level ever since its establishment.

In April 2004 a project was launched for achieving certification under ISO 9001, the international standard for quality management systems. By July 2006 the Head Office and all branch offices had obtained ISO 9001 certification.

To establish an internal control system for financial reports, an Internal Control (COSO) Promotion Project was launched in July 2004 to put in place appropriate regulations and systems.

In 2012 an Internal Control Supervisory Committee was formed as a risk management system to achieve further improvement in management quality. Under its jurisdiction were established a J-SOX Committee, Compliance Committee, Information Security Committee, and Environmental Committee, and the post of Chief Risk Management Officer (CRO) was established to supervise them.
