Japan aluminum industry may consider crafting quality assurance guidelines after Kobe Steel scandal

Tuesday, Nov 14, 2017

  Japan’s aluminum industry may consider crafting sector-wide quality assurance guidelines if it gets requests from member companies to do so in the wake of the data fabrication scandal that has engulfed Japan’s Kobe Steel Ltd, the head of Japan’s aluminum industry association said on Monday.

Mitsuru Okada, the chairman of the Japan Aluminium Association, made the comment at a news conference in the Japanese capital.

Kobe Steel said on Friday a lack of quality controls and a focus on profits was behind widespread data tampering at Japan’s third-biggest steelmaker in a scandal that has shaken up the supply chains of car and plane makers around the world.
