Japan is the most economically developed country in East Asia. The country’s large domestic market and the society’s high affinity for technology and willingness to innovate attract many internationally operating companies. However, the barriers to market entry remain as high as ever due to opaque regulations and the persistent language barrier.
The Japanese certification system is extremely complex, as the responsibilities for various approvals are spread across a large number of authorities, laboratories and other players. Even though many certifications are merely voluntary, many Japanese customers and importers require them as mandatory proof of conformity. In addition, product allocation to the actual mandatory certifications causes problems for many companies.
Dealing with Japanese certifications requires extensive preparation, which is extremely difficult without Japanese language skills and good contact with the local authorities. Rigid regulations and procedures within the certification authorities also require flawless document and change management, as well as completely independent tracking of regulations. Non-compliance can lead to the immediate loss of certificates.
