Japanese Agricultural Standard Certification

JAS (Japanese Agricultural Standards) are the Japanese National Standards in the field of agricultural, forestry, fisheries and food industry. JAS was established by the Ministry of agriculture, forestry and fisheries.

All parties of the production chain have to undergo product testing and factory audits. It is necessary that the product testing is conducted at a Certification Assessment Body (CAB) test lab. The on-site factory inspection will also be done by CAB auditors.

After the initial JAS Certification is finished the manufacturer has to make sure to do follow-up inspections every year to maintain compliance and to keep the JAS certification valid.

The certification process and marking are dependent on the product.


General JAS:

General JAS applies to foods and forestry products which are required to show conformity to the JAS quality grade, composition and specification.



Specific JAS:

Specific JAS applies to foods which are required to show conformity to the JAS for specific method and for foods with distinctive characteristics (for example, specialty matured foods).



Organic JAS:

Organic JAS applies agricultural products and processed foods which are required to show conformity to the Organic JAS. It is prohibited to sell agricultural products and processed foods as “Organic foods” with names such as “有機”,”Organic”, etc. without the Organic JAS logo.
