Revision of the Japanese Industrial Standardization Act
Standardization Strategy Section, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), Japan
METI is, as of the beginning of May 2018, in the process of revising the Japanese Industrial Standardization Act which was enacted in 1949 and has supported Japan’s standardization system for almost 70 years. Objectives of the revision are: 1) expansion of the scope into services and other sectors, 2) acceleration of the JIS development process, 3) promotion of international standardization activities, and 4) enhancement of penalties. The new act is expected to come into effect in the latter half of 2019 if it is passed through the Japanese Diet as planned. By making use of the new system, Japan will strengthen both domestic and international standardization activities.
