New Establishment and Revision of the Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) (April 2024)

April 22, 2024
 
The Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) are a collection of national standards stipulating the criteria for the quality of products, services and so forth in Japan. The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) has been newly establishing and revising these standards in response to societal and technological changes. METI introduces the newly established or revised JIS this month.

1.Outline of the JIS

The JIS are a collection of national standards under the Industrial Standardization Act (JIS Act) that stipulate the types, quality and performance of products, data, services, and so forth, as well as test or assessment methods for ascertaining these types and quality.

Producers and service providers make use of JIS for the purpose of producing and providing quality products and services, while consumers and other product users make use of JIS to access quality products and services.

Related ministries and agencies have been establishing new standards or revising the existing ones in response to technological advancements, changes in the social environments and other factors as necessary.

The establishment and revision of JIS is conducted by the competent ministers, including the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry, through discussions by the Japanese Industrial Standards Committee (JISC).1 (Regarding a proposal for establishing a new JIS or revising the existing one, which is to be prepared by an Accredited Standards Developing Organization,2 the competent minister may swiftly establish or revise the JIS without holding discussions at JISC.)

Notes:

1. JISC is a committee established by METI under the JIS Act.
2. Accredited Standards Developing Organization is a private body who are accredited as having expertise in developing JIS by the relevant Minister.
 

2.Outline of the new establishment and revision of JIS

In April 2024, METI newly established 9 standards and revised 16 standards.
 
Among these standards, 1 revised standard was submitted by the Japanese Standards Association (JSA); 2 established standards and 8 revised standards were submitted by Japan Iron and Steel Federation. Both are Accredited Standards Developing Organizations (see Appendix 1).
