The SS-00259 for General Use is an electronic version of the printed SS-00259, which is intended for the exclusive use of our business partners. The SS-00259 defines "Controlled Substances" that, in our judgment, have a significant impact on the global environment and may harm human health. It aims to ban or phase out the use of them in the process of design, manufacture, and distribution of products. Sony is committed to manufacturing environmental products in compliance with the SS-00259 and contributing towards the protection of the global environment and ecosystems.
Sony will obey all applicable laws and regulations prohibiting or restricting the use of substances that may not be explicitly stated in the SS-00259.
In collaboration with our business partners, we will continue to manufacture environmental products in compliance with the SS-00259 and contribute towards the protection of the global environment and ecosystems. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated!
