Hoshizaki has a structure for making legal submissions.
Laws such as the Energy Conservation Act and the Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) Law require submission of a large number of documents. Hoshizaki works to ensure that all legally required documents are submitted without omission. To this end, we have compiled lists for each law, pertaining to air, water quality, noise, vibration, soil, etc., covering the relevant reporting agencies, reasons for reporting, document names, submission addresses, submission dates, legal provisions, etc. Furthermore, we constantly monitor the revision status of each regulation. A single division is designated as responsible for reporting, and they ensure against checklists once a year that we have properly reported all matters required for the current year.
Those laws are not easy for everyone to comprehend even if every employee were to read them. The development and operation of our systems has made it much easier for employees to understand the laws, as well as enabling us to implement legal compliance without omission.
