Declaration of self-conformity: Information and Explanation

1.What is the Declaration of self-conformity?

In the past, our company displayed the old JIS mark on our wool press felts. This will now be changed to a Declaration of self-conformity, a method of proving that our products conform to JIS L3201 (wool press felts).

The Declaration of self-conformity proves that our company conforms to the applicable JIS standard under the new JIS system, which came into being with revisions to the Industrial Standardization Law (effective October 1st, 2005).
Both the display of the JIS mark and the Declaration of self-conformity act as proof of conformity to JIS L3201.

a) Declaration of self-conformity and b) Support documents (Inspection result, Product specification) are prepared for present.

2.Relevant Product

b)Wool Press Felts RW8030J、RW8050J
c)Wool Press Felts FW5060J

3.Self-declaration Mark

For JIS-compliant products, “Compliant with JIS L3201, based on JIS Q 1000” will be written on the label, upon request.

4.Regarding Public Construction

Public Building Construction Standard Specifications, issued by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, was revised in January 2004, and JIS-compliant products based on the Declaration of self-conformity can be accepted in the same way as products bearing the JIS mark, so this poses no particular problem for public construction.

In this case, a Declaration of self-conformity shall be attached, instead of the Japanese Industrial Standards Labeling Permit (or JIS certificate) in use until now.

5.Additional Points

Our company has always been an ISO9001-certified factory. This means that our quality control system is examined each year by a third-party certification body.
Furthermore, as our materials, equipment, manufacturing processes, and management methods have remained unchanged, we will continue to provide the same level of quality that we did in the past.
