Japanese Industrial System (JIS)

The new JIS Marking system permits manufacturers, resellers or processors to display the new JIS mark to show conformance to JIS. The JIS Marking system is governed by METI (the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Japan) who control all aspects of its use.

For the JIS Mark scheme, ATCA as a Registered JIS Mark Certification Body (RCB) outside Japan will, in addition to ISO 17065, apply the requirements of Article 23 of the Industrial Standardization Law (Japan) for foreign manufacturers.

All testing conducted by ATCA for JIS Mark will be conducted at Unit 3/106 Fison Avenue West, Eagle Farm, QLD 4009.

Overview of ATCA and our functions

Ownership
ATCA is an association with its members being manufacturers of wood panel products in Australia. ATCA is affiliated with the Engineered Wood Products Association of Australasia (EWPAA) which includes the former AWPA (Australian Wood Panels Association) and PAA (Plywood Association of Australasia). The EWPAA, located in Brisbane, provides management and administrative services to ATCA.

Facilities
ATCA, located in South East Queensland, operates a Test Centre Laboratory which provides a testing and certification service to the Australian and regional industry. The laboratory is a NATA accredited facility able to do most of the wood panel (particleboard, MDF, plywood and LVL) tests specified in AS/NZS, EN and JIS. The centre, established in 1998, is modern, well equipped, staffed by competent technicians and offers professional and accurate reports.

Testing
ATCA is able to provide testing for members and in some cases, non-members, for a wide range of recognized tests for forest products. View our NATA Scope of Accreditation to see what tests we are accredited for. To find out the charges for these tests, please contact us.

Product Certification
ATCA operates three product certification schemes. The certification schemes are operated in accordance with ISO 17065. These schemes are governed by an independent board, the ATCA Review Committee, which is composed of representatives of various industry sectors. The schemes allow manufacturers to be independently assessed as complying with national standards. The certified manufacturer is then licensed to use a certification mark which signifies compliance. ATCA uses experienced and professional industry experts to conduct the assessments. The certification schemes are:

* AWPA JAS-ANZ Scheme
* JIS Mark Certification Scheme (ATCA is accredited by METI, Japan)
* CARB certification (ATCA is approved by the California Air Resources Board)

ATCA Operations other than certification
ATCA operations are primarily certification activities.  However, ATCA may undertake Third Party Testing for Organisations.  In all cases, where Third party testing is undertaken, the testing shall only be within the scope of ATCA’s NATA accreditation.
