The basic system for JIS marking was amended in 2004 which included the change from governmental accreditation to private third party certification. Additionally the conventional marking system was removed. Therefore the system provides business entities with free choice of “JIS indication” or “self-declaration of conformity”.
We had adopted the mark of the Japanese Industrial Standard (which is called “JIS mark”) indicated on our products for a long time, however, after the above JIS amendment we decided to adopt “JIS Q 1000 Conformity assessment - Guidelines for suppliers' declarations of conformity with product standards”.
“Suppliers' declarations of conformity” means that a business entity clearly declares and guarantees their products conforming to JIS.
The standard “JIS Q 1000” was enacted in order to ensure the reliability of above. “JIS Q 1000” recommends the ISO9001 and ISO/IEC 17025 for operation.
In addition to the quality assurance system conforming to ISO 9001, we are certified according to ISO/IEC 17025 to demonstrate technical competence of Testing and Calibration of Laboratories with annual assessment by the third party organization. Also, in accord with supply performance of JIS reagents for over 50 years, we follow the raw material, production equipment, production process and the control standards etc. to the new system and we supply the reagents of reliable quality in the same manner.
We strive to work on reinforcement of quality assurance system as heretofore and make further efforts to improve the level of service.
