Agriculture and Food JAS – Japanese Agricultural Standard
SGS deals with Organic JAS, which certifies products produced without pesticides and chemical fertilizers, and also Disclosing Production Information JAS, which gives customers access to accurate production information.
Organic product claims that can be proven may apply for certification under the Japanese Agriculture Standard (JAS) for organic products. In 2001, the law concerning Standardization and Proper Labeling of Agricultural and Forestry Products was amended, clarifying the labeling system for organic goods.
Disclosing Production Information JAS is a certification scheme which ensures producers record, keep and disclose relevant product information, and that consumers can access these details if they choose.
Today, certified products may display the JAS logo on their packaging. Products can carry JAS marks on the packages if they are graded by producers, manufacturers, distributors, or importers who are certified by a third party organization.
