UL Recognition is a certification provided by the U.S. nonprofit testing institution ‘Underwriters Laboratories,’ which evaluates and certifies the safety of plastic parts. Our company has acquired certifications from this institution for around 70 grades including flame-retardant and thermal-resistant resins. This is the most authoritative certification institution for product safety verification asked for by buyers around the world.
This system certifies the safety of 17 substances in direct or indirect contact with foods as defined in the EU Regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004) and their non-transmission to foods in excess of the allowable limits. The EU has Glass & Fork, Germany, LFGB, and France, DGCCRF, as their respective certification marks and LOTTE CHEMICAL has acquired food contact-related certificates for therelevant products.
As a certification system enforced by the U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration), it evaluates and certifies the safety of resin products used for food packages, plastic bottle caps, and Ringer’s solution bottles.

The RoHS Directives (The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive) refer to the EU guidelines that were implemented in 2006 for the all-out prohibition of the sale of electronic products containing hazardous substances such as lead, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, mercury, and brominated flame retardants. LOTTE CHEMICAL requests accredited testing laboratories to issue test reports demonstrating that the products requested by customers are safe from the aforementioned hazardous substances and promptly distributes these results to customers. Henceforth, we will expand and supplement more high-priced analysis equipment at our research institute and production technology institute and ensure that prompt responses are made to customers’ requests through our own analysis efforts.
We are validating the safety of our products through our own analysis of the 4 major hazardous substances (lead, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, mercury) in RoHS Directives at our own production technology institute which is registered as an accredited testing laboratory.
IMDS is a system that manages the information on raw material components used by automobile makers and their partners for manufacturing and provides it on the Internet to respond to global environmental regulations such as the EU’s End-of-Life Vehicles Directive (ELV). This international material data management system, manages the content of environmentally hazardous substances in parts to prevent environmental pollution by building a database of all parts.
LOTTE CHEMICAL is seeking differentiated customer satisfaction through customized service based on the analysis of customer requests. The automobile-related test reports are intended for automakers that are major customers and a variety of test reports on various products are issued on our website upon request.
The MSDS originated with the establishment of standards for hazardous materials in 1983 by OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) under the US Labor Department, based on its judgment that about 600 chemical substances are harmful to workers in their workplaces. These standards came into force in 1985, at which time the large chemical companies who agreed with federal laws concerning workers’ right-to-know supported them and a draft proposal on MSDA was prepared. In 1992, the U.S. Chemical Manufacturers’ Association (CMA) enacted and promulgated a unified MSDS proposal by acquiring certification from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). LOTTE CHEMICAL provides customers with the MSDS on our products.
