Basic Philosophy

Aiming at international peace and security, export management (Security export control) has been implemented to protect cargo and technology from being utilized by Organizations with some kind of connection to Regional conflicts or Nuclear development for military purpose. The demand for proper export control has been increasing due to worsening international security. To suitably execute export controls based on the Foreign Exchange and Foreign Trade Control Act, we have drawn up our own Export Management Regulations and established our in-house export control system. Our logistics departments have been working to achieve proper cargo control under the background of solid security management system of export cargoes for terrorism prevention based on various relevant systems. We will continue to carry out business in compliance with all laws and regulations to fulfill our responsibilities as demanded by the international community and the government.
