Japan Association of Management System Certification Bodies (JACB)
Masato Onodera, Representative Director
(JUSE-ISO Center, Union of Japanese Scientists and Engineers)



Japan Association of Management System Certification Bodies (abbreviation: JACB) was established in April 2000, and this year we are celebrating our 20th anniversary.

JACB have an aim to develop and spread the third party certification of management systems and have focused on various activities such as conducting investigation for the certification system, exchanging knowledge and information about certification system, dispatching the representative members to various committees and conferences related to the certification system and communicating with related bodies.

During these twenty years, we have strived to improve the quality of certification activities of management systems and raise the social status of certification bodies through mutual cooperation and interaction among member bodies and implementing necessary activities, and contributed to sound development and spread of the third party certification systems.


As we have reached the milestone year, I will work diligently to fulfill an important mission of the Representative Director.

The most important activities in JACB are the activities of technical committees that have contributed to improvement of mutual knowledge and technologies, and we will continue the effort in a more active manner. Dispatching members to the IAF General Assembly and the Technical Committees to offer opinions as Japanese certification bodies and obtain various information from around the world is also an important function of JACB. In addition, while

maintaining the right tension with the accreditation bodies, we will focus on exchanging opinions for further development of the systems.

Based on the know-how we have accumulated over the past twenty years and aiming for new developments, we will revisit the philosophy at the time of the establishment of the JACB and in order for the certification systems to achieve continued advancement, we will strive to focus on overall activities as a fresh start for the next twenty years .

(April 2020)
