Voluntary Safety & EMC Approval
Manufacturers who wish to obtain S-JQA Certification for numerous models over a long period of time are encouraged to register their own testing facilities with JQA.
By registering their in-house testing facilities, manufacturers can avoid local testing in Japan and greatly reduce lead times.
Laboratories are assessed for compliance with ISO/IEC 17025.
Laboratories with no previous accreditation are required to undergo a pre-assessment to prepare for registration and a formal assessment at the time of registration.
Laboratories that maintain ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation for the relevant scope may be eligible for a reduced assessment process.
JQA inspects the following items when conducting assessments:
- Testing capabilities
- Testing equipment & calibration records
- Management of quality system
Costs Associated with S-JQA Lab Registration
Initial costs include the assessment fee, assessor traveling & accommodation expenses, and an application processing fee.
An annual registration maintenance cost will also be invoiced every year in April. Follow-up assessments are generally required once a year.
