TOKYO (Reuters) - Kobe Steel has stopped shipping about 43 percent of copper products from Hatano plant, near Tokyo, because it was found to violate Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) regulations, the company said on Friday.
The Hatano plant has suspended shipping products that need JIS certification since Thursday and a certification company has begun on-site inspection, a Kobe spokeswoman said.
