Leo's Commitment to Product Safety Amidst SVHC Expansion

As of January 23, 2024, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) expanded its Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) to a total of 240 SVHCs. Five new SVHCs have been added to the list and these substances are commonly found in products such as inks, toners, adhesives, sealants and washing and cleaning products. In response to this update, Leo has taken proactive measures to effectively control the presence of these SVHCs.

As a leading paper product manufacturing company, Leo is fully committed to assisting you in meeting local legal requirements and adhering to international standards. We prioritize your safety needs and continuously improve our product safety performance across our organization and apply the same standards to our supply chain striving for quality reliability and excellence. To achieve this, we have implemented a comprehensive framework that effectively manages and controls hazardous substances present in component parts and products, ensuring compliance with local standards and regulations. This framework covers 7 important areas:

Additionally, Leo’s Product Safety Steering Committee led by our Directors and General Managers plays a crucial role in overseeing product safety issues and regularly reviewing them and addressing any emerging concerns.
