The firm is now unable to attach the JIS mark on copper pipes made at its Hatano plant in Kanagawa Prefecture, operated by subsidiary Kobelco & Materials Copper Tube Co., after having its JIS certificate revoked for other copper products from the same plant last month by the Japan Quality Assurance Organization.
