JAS - Certification system

The JAS certification system is designed to ensure the reliability of JAS marks though certification by Registered Certifying Bodies (hereafter RCBs), which are third party organization. The Certified Business Entities, such as producers or manufacturers, or others who have been certified by the RCBs grade their products or inspect production processes by themselves can label JAS marks to their products.

As a result of the recent amendments to the Law and Ordinances on JAS which took effect in March 2006, any certifying bodies from any countries are able to apply for the status of Registered Overseas Certifying Bodies.
