Activities of Committees and Working Groups
The mission of the board is to discuss and decide the whole policy of the council on direction, activities, establishment of committee/working group, and other relevant issues.
The mission of the committee is to discuss technical issues. This committee can have internal working groups as necessary.
As a first step, JAC has planed to discuss the interpretation of ISO/CASCO documents (e.g. ISO/IEC 17011, ISO/IEC 17065, ISO/IEC 17025, etc.) among its member bodies.
As of June 2006, JAC has two Working Groups as follows;

JLAC (Japan Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation) / Laboratory Accreditation Working Group
Concerned accreditation bodies using ISO/IEC 17025 are gathering to discuss on the common technical issues and conduct dissemination activities of laboratory accreditation system. Japan Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (JLAC) that had served for laboratory accreditation consisting of three members (IAJapan, JAB, VLAC), was integrated into a working group on laboratory accreditation under the Technical Committee of JAC.
