1. Press release

Release date:
November 19, 2007
Title:
Updated database on recalls and company announcements
Publisher:
Life and Welfare Technology Center
Summary:

In consideration of the frequency of accidents caused by consumer products in recent years, NITE is providing information on recalls and company announcements, based on notifications from the relevant businesses, through its website in the aim of preventing the recurrence of accidents.
Although the website covers data from 1989, there were a number of cases where the original contacts were unreachable due to changes in contact details or bankruptcies, etc. NITE therefore has reviewed and updated the data. The updated information is now available at the URL shown below.
