Risk management Business Continuity Policy
Business Continuity Policy
Yamazen Corporation and its group companies (hereinafter, “the Yamazen Group”) constitute a specialized trading company that deals both in “production equipment” that supports the manufacturing that is the pillar of Japanese industry, such as machine tools, industrial equipment, and cutting tools, as well as “consumer goods” that help maintain the comforts of daily life, such as housing equipment and home products, and that is growing its business both in Japan and overseas. In the event that this business is interrupted, there would be a significant impact on the customers that use the Yamazen Group’s products and services, which we would expect to result in a loss of trust in the Group. Accordingly, we have formulated Business Continuity Plans (BCP) based on this policy in response to a variety of threats that could interrupt the Yamazen Group’s business, and we declare that we will continuously make improvements in response to changes in the internal and external environment.
１Preventing and correcting interruptions of business

In addition, when new threats that would have an impact on the continuity of the business are perceived, corrective action shall be taken without delay.
