Business Continuity Plan


At Hamamatsu Photonics, we seek to contribute to society through the development of advanced optical technologies as well as the development of new industries. We wish to continue this mission even in the event of a large-scale disaster, such as the anticipated Tokai Earthquake. With this in mind, Hamamatsu Photonics has prepared a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) that documents our methods of preparing for & recovering from a large-scale disaster. This plan describes the measures to be taken for us to fulfill our responsibility as a stable supplier of products to our customers.



Basic policy

The basic policy of Hamamatsu Photonics’ BCP is as follows:

  • Protection of human life
    • The continuation of business operations will proceed with first priority given to the protection of the lives of our employees and their families, our customers and related parties.


  • Continuation of business operations
    • With foremost consideration given to our employees’ safety, we will initiate efforts to quickly put into place the organization necessary to provide a stable supply of products to our customers, thus sustaining the trust of our customers which forms the foundation of our business.


  • Contributions to society
    • In addition to resuming the stable supply of products, we will contribute to society by proactively engaging as much as possible with relief efforts in regions affected by the disaster.


System for business continuity


Hamamatsu Photonics' Business Continuity Plan includes a Fundamental BCP that describes companywide measures which will be undertaken by each manufacturing division in conjunction with the relevant department in the Business Headquarters. In addition to the Fundamental BCP, each manufacturing division has documented its own BCP to take into account the particular characteristics of its products, etc. There is also a BCP for headquarter functions, which describes the necessary measures to be taken by the Business Headquarters in support of each manufacturing division.
