Welcome to JAC!
Recent accreditation systems operated by the governments of Japan based such as the JIS Law, JAS Law, Pharmaceutical Affairs Law,etc. are using the relevant International Standards/Guides on conformity assessment as the criteria for conformity assessment bodies.
The accreditation systems operated by the private sector, such as management system accreditation system, are also using the relevant International Standards/Guides.

As these public and private accreditation bodies are operating their own accreditation systems based on the same international standards and using similar requirements, cooperation among these bodies are necessary for harmonizing and maintaining accreditation procedures and their quality of business.
Now, JAC has been launched in order to share the experiences as accreditation bodies among ourselves and, therefore, contribute to increase the all-Japan Conformity Assessment Society.
