Quality and product safety
Approach to Quality and Product Safety
The CSR theme "Quality and Product Safety" is based on the following policy.
"TAMRON combines innovation with its technological capabilities to create excitement and peace of mind by providing high quality products that earn the trust of customers while considering safety and the environment." Initiatives aimed at the key CSR issues are undertaken based on a comprehensive management system that integrates the ISO9001 and ISO14001 standards for quality and environmental management systems.
In addition to all domestic sites including head office and the three Aomori plants, TAMRON’s overseas production sites have also obtained ISO9001 and ISO14001 certification.
On another front, TAMRONis working to obtain TS16949 (to be migrated to IATF16949) certification, quality management systems for the automotive industry in relation to automotive lenses requiring greater quality.
In addition, our head office and Aomori Factory acquired ISO 13485 certification in 2021 for the design and manufacturing of lens parts for endoscopes.
