Textile Standards Japan Quality Inspection
JIS (Japanese Industrial Standards) is the code name for Japanese Industrial Standards. JIS standards are formulated by the Japan Industrial Standards Survey. The Japan Industrial Standards Survey is an official Japanese organization, affiliated to the Industrial Technology Institute of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry of Japan. Its main task is to approve and publish JIS standards. Such an establishment was implemented after the implementation of the Industrial Standardization Act on July 1, 1949.
JIS standards are divided into product standards, test method standards and basic standards according to the nature of the content.
Japan is very picky about the quality of textiles and clothing. Japanese traders have a set of strict product quality standards for textiles and clothing entering Japan as a basis for review. There are three main specifications: Japanese Industrial Standards (JISL), Product Liability Law (P/L), and product quality standard determination.
(1) JISL regulations (Japanese Industrial Standards). This regulation stipulates various standards and methods for textile quality testing, with detailed safety and functional standards.
(2) Product Liability Law (P/L) Law. This law stipulates that when a product’s poor manufacturing causes loss of life or property to a consumer, the manufacturer shall be held responsible; when the product itself is damaged but does not cause damage to others or items, it will not be held accountable; due to the manufacturing of the product Or when an accident caused by poor production causes damage to consumers, the manufacturer shall compensate after it is confirmed; problems in the design, problems in the manufacturing process, unclear labelling, such as due to the lack of instructions and warnings The manufacturer should compensate for the harm caused by using words to remind consumers of the product.
(3) Determination of product quality standards. In terms of quality standards, they generally focus on various types of textiles or apparel products from the following aspects: physical properties, dye fastness, product specifications, safety (pharmaceutical residues) etc.), product appearance, sewing and other aspects are tested.
When Japanese trading companies or companies import textile and apparel products from China, they will establish a set of quality inspection standards and require manufacturers to go to designated quality inspection agencies ( Such as inspection companies) must obtain certification or authorization before they are allowed to be marketed in Japan.
Japan also has a variety of textile fiber and clothing logos. The Q mark (quality) is Japan’s quality product mark; the SIF Sewing Inspection Association (SIF) mark is a mark that recognizes and recommends excellent products.
