Sustainability Supply Chain Management
CSR procurement efforts
CSR efforts are also carried out actively by our customers.
Now that compliance and CSR are subject to strict scrutiny, it is believed that the scope of the responsibility for labor, the environment and corporate ethics, etc. in the manufacturing process of products has come down to the overall supply chain, rather than remaining within the relevant company.
If a problem arises in any part of a supply chain, the company that caused the problem will be eliminated from the market and society, which will endanger its existence.
Accordingly, a high level of CSR efforts has come to be required for Marubun, a supplier, as well.
These efforts are also required for Marubun’s supply chains.
We will ask all our business partners who are involved in the business of the Marubun Group to understand the importance of CSR procurement and cooperate with it.
Efforts against conflict minerals
Conflict minerals are minerals (tantalum, tin, gold and tungsten) produced in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and its neighboring countries that are used as sources of funds for local armed groups.
It is now required that information on the use of conflict minerals in products be disclosed in accordance with the relevant legal regulations in the United States and the OECD guidelines.
As a CSR procurement effort, Marubun will not only encourage its supply chains not to use conflict minerals, but will also cooperate with investigations undertaken by customers.
Management of contained chemical substances
Chemical substance management initiatives are spreading throughout the world, and it has become an important issue for companies to comply with the chemical substance management regulations of other countries.
The Marubun Group responds to a variety of needs, including chemSHERPA, JAMA sheets, ICP data, and non-use certificates, and focuses on the appropriate management and smooth communication of information on chemical substances contained in products.
Trace International Certification
TRACE International, Inc. is a non-profit membership association that pools resources to provide practical and cost-effective anti-bribery compliance solutions for multinational companies and their commercial intermediaries. TRACE granted MARUBUN CORPORATION a certificate of membership signifying the company’s commitment to transparency in international commercial transactions.

Security export control
We recognize that security export control is one of the most important items in risk management and strive to comply with the Foreign Exchange and Foreign Trade Law, the laws and regulations of each country, and international treaties.
We have established security export control rules and regulations, and conduct control based on the determination of the applicability of all products and the examination of transactions for exports. In the case of export transactions, the results of the applicability determination are appropriately notified to customers in the form of quotations, purchase orders, delivery slips, and other documents.
Authorized Economic Operator
We have been approved as a “Authorized Economic Operator” by Tokyo Customs. In November 2008, Marubun became the first semiconductor trading company to be approved by Tokyo Customs. The approval was granted in recognition of Marubun’s compliance system for export operations, including security management, as well as the absence of any irregularities as a company.
Approval as a specified exporter has the advantage of shortening export lead time. By becoming a specified exporter, you can file an export declaration and receive export approval no matter where the export cargo is located (e.g., at own factory or warehouse, or on its way to a port or airport). Furthermore, unlike the normal screening process, where export licenses are obtained after checking the actual goods and documents, export licenses are obtained simply by inputting data into a dedicated terminal for export declarations, eliminating the need to submit evidence such as proof of non-applicability. This means that export cargo can be loaded onto aircraft quickly and smoothly, and logistics costs, such as transportation fees, can be reduced.
