"We participate in IEC activities
and comply with IEC standards...
to achieve worldwide acceptance.”
Dr. Kazuo Kyuma

Interview in Tokyo, June 2010

Supporting sustainable growth

As a reply to the question why Mitsubishi Electric participates in IEC standardization and complies with IEC International Standards, Dr. Kyuma explained: "One of the guiding principles of Mitsubishi is quality. Price and on-time delivery are very important, but quality is even more important. We believe that by delivering a high level of reliability and safety we can increase customer satisfaction." "Mitsubishi Electric wants to grow and succeed as a corporation and we want to do so in a sustainable way. That’s why we participate in IEC activities and comply with IEC standards to ensure the reliability and safety of our products and to achieve worldwide acceptance."

Many voices help build strong standards

Dr. Kyuma’s message to companies who are not actively participating in international standardization: "We strongly believe that in order to build better standards it is absolutely necessary for many people from many companies all over the world to participate in the IEC. Only then is it possible to formulate strong standards that are globally relevant. Mitsubishi Electric intends to continue to contribute to IEC standardization through its many technologies and ideas."
