Japanese industrial standard Japanese industrial standard Presentation Transcript

  • Japanese Industrial Standard
  • Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) (日本工業規格 Nippon KōgyōKikaku?) specifies the standards used for industrial activities in Japan. The standardization process is coordinated by Japanese Industrial Standards Committee and published through Japanese Standards Association.
  • In the Meiji era, private enterprises were responsible for making standards although the Japanese government did have standards and specification documents for procurement purposes for certain articles, such as munitions.
    These were summarized to form an official standard (old JES) in 1921. During World War II, simplified standards were established to increase matériel output.

  • The present Japanese Standards Association was established after Japan's defeat in World War II in 1945. The Japanese Industrial Standards Committee regulations were promulgated in 1946, Japanese standards (new JES) was formed.
    The Industrial Standardization Law was enacted in 1949, which forms the legal foundation for the present Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS).

  • The Industrial Standardization Law was revised in 2004 and the "JIS mark" (product certification system) was changed, and the new JIS mark was applied since October 1, 2005 upon re-certification.
  • The old mark is allowed to be used until September 30, 2008, for a transition period of 3 years, and every manufacture obtaining new or renewing certification under the authority's approval are then able to use the new JIS mark. Therefore all JIS certified Japanese products shall have the new JIS mark after October 1, 2008.
  • History
    JIS symbol (adopted October 1, 2005)
    Old JIS symbol (was used until September 30, 2008)
  • JIS covers industrial and mineral products with the exception of (1) medicines, (2) agricultural chemicals, (3) chemical fertilizers, (4) silk yarn, and (5) foodstuffs, agricultural and forest products designated under the Law Concerning Standardization and Proper Labeling of Agricultural and Forestry Products.
    Outline of JIS
  • The, letter symbol indicates the technical area (JIS Division), and the 4-digit or 5-digit number is added to locate the JIS in an appropriate place within that Division (see the explanation in Figure 6)
    Outline of JIS
  • Standardization items established as JIS have the following symbols:JIS C 7501: The majorities of JIS have this type of symbol.JIS Q 14001: This symbol is mainly used in case JIS adopts international standard identically.JIS X 5056-1: This symbol is used in case JIS adopts international standard specifies only a part of the necessary requirements
    Outline of JIS
  • Standardization can be defined as “reducing, simplifying, and organizing matters which are apt to become diversified, complicated, and chaotic if left uncontrolled.” Standards can be defined as “rules” specified by standardization. There are mandatory standards and voluntary standards, but generally voluntary ones are referred to as “standards.” 
    Industrial standardization
  • Industrial standardization represents standardization in the industrial sector, and in Japan, Japanese Industrial Standards are adopted as national industrial standards. With regard to “goods” and “matters,” which are apt to become diversified, complicated, and chaotic if left uncontrolled, industrial standardization aims to establish state-level “standards” in the form of technical documents and to “unify” or “simplify” them equally throughout Japan,
    Industrial standardization
  • From the multiple viewpoints of ensuring convenience in economic and social activities (securing compatibility), enhancing production efficiency (mass -production by reducing variety), securing fairness (assurance of consumer profits and simplification of transactions), promoting technology advancement (support for the creation of new knowledge
    Industrial standardization
  • and the development/dissemination of new technologies), preserving safety and health, and conserving the environment.The significance of industrial standardization can be explained as follows, focusing on the functions thereof (operation and effects).
    Industrial standardization
  • Functions contributing to economic activities
    Functions as a means to achieve social goals
    Functions as action rules to promote mutual understanding
    Functions for promoting trade
    Industrial standardization
  • Assurance of appropriate product quality standards
    Provision of product information
    Dissemination of technology
    Enhancement of production efficiency
    Development of competitive environment
    Securing compatibility and interface consistency
    Functions contributing to economic activities
  • Industrial standardization can promote the proactive activities of companies and consumers without imposing regulations by technical standards defined by mandatory legislation
    Functions as a means to achieve social goals
  • If they are working appropriately as a means to pursue policy goals such as “enhancement of industrial competitiveness,” “preservation of environment, safety, and rights,” and “promotion of energy conservation and resource conservation.”
    Functions as a means to achieve social goals
  • Industrial standardization can unify technical infrastructure such as terms, marks, measurement units, test assessment methods, production methods, safety levels, format display of specifications, etc. as a means to mutually communicate technical requirements and technical data between related parties (manufacturers, distributors, users, consumers, and researchers).
    Functions as action rules to promote mutual understanding
  • Furthermore, in recent years, guidelines for test assessment methods, specifications concerning consumer goods, mark display, and various management systems have become important aspects of industrial standardization, with a view to promoting international standardization.
    Functions as action rules to promote mutual understanding
  • As trade has become globalized and trade volume has increased, the maintaining of differing national standards and technical standards by individual countries, as defined by mandatory legislation, may hinder international trade. It is difficult to ensure that all countries bring their mandatory technical standards legislation into line with each other’s standards,
    Functions for promoting trade
  • but in such cases, industrial standardization can be utilized to maintain and develop free trade. In other words, countries’ national standards are to be adjusted to comply with international standards which the ISO/IEC adopts based on international consensuses, and such national standards are to be incorporated into countries’ mandatory legislation technical standards.
    Functions for promoting trade
  • Standards are named like "JIS X 0208:1997", where X denotes area division, followed by four digits (or five digits for some of the standards corresponding ISO standards), and the revision release year. Divisions of JIS and significant standards are:
