Product Responsibility


Product stewardship is an approach that seeks to address health, safety and environment aspects throughout all stages of a product’s life cycle (see Figure.1). Therefore, product stewardship should concern all parties who design, develop, manufacture, market, handle or use products.


We, as Kansai Altan, don’t see product stewardship just as a compliance with legal requirements but an integral part of our business strategy. We are periodically reviewing our targets that are determined based on risk assessments and regulatory compliance. Our functions that are primarily involved in the implementation process of product stewardship are as follows:

  • Research & development
  • Marketing & sales
  • Technical service
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Health, safety and environment
  • Purchasing
  • Dispatching
