As you may be aware, the state legislature of California enacted a law regulating the use and handling of Perchlorate (LiClO4) in industrial and retail products. Panasonic as a company has been in the forefront of producing environmentally safe products as well as complying with the environmental laws both in the United States and abroad. As Perchlorate is one of the chemical components of our CR Lithium primary coin cell batteries, we would like to inform you of the details of the regulation and some of the required action to comply with the law.
