Panasonic revealed that more than 520 engineers did not meet the conditions of work experience when acquiring the national qualification such as "construction management engineer" necessary for management of construction work.

The company is considering disposing of the employee as well as returning the qualification.

Panasonic became a lawyer last November because it was suspected that employees of a subsidiary did not meet the conditions of work experience when acquiring the national qualification of "construction management engineer" necessary for managing construction work. We set up a third-party committee to investigate.



As a result, since 1981, a total of 522 engineers, including employees of Panasonic subsidiaries and affiliated companies, have calculated the period of work experience in duplicate when acquiring national qualifications, etc. It turned out that I had not confirmed it.



The number of homes and buildings with these technicians in charge could be as high as 2422, but so far no impact on quality or safety has been identified.



The company is considering disposing of it after returning the qualifications to the target employees.



Panasonic commented, "We apologize for the great concern and inconvenience caused to the customers and business partners who requested the construction work. We will strengthen the check system to prevent recurrence."
