History of ASEAN support project

Since our member companies started to expand to build factories in the ASEAN countries, regulatory compliance has become essential.

Therefore, in March 2011, the ASEAN Research Team was dispatched by the Technology Committee to investigate the situation of relevant organizations within ASEAN. After that, we have continued investigation team every year and tried to grasp the situation.

In 2014, we were approved subsidiary program by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and carried out activities for two years.

We have been entrusted with JAIF Project since 2018.
The project name of 1st Phase is "Capacity Building for Conformity Assessment for ITE in ASEAN Member States" and the 2nd Phase is "ASEAN Japan Partnership Program for EMC and Safety Conformity Assessment of Multimedia Equipment" respectively.

JAIF Overview

The Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF) was officially established in March 2006, based on the pledge from then Japanese Prime Minister H.E. Mr. Junichiro Koizumi at the Ninth ASEAN-Japan Summit held in December 2005 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

JAIF aims at supporting integration efforts to create the ASEAN Community by facilitating the implementation of the ASEAN 2025: Forging Ahead Together, which consists of the blueprints for the ASEAN Political Security Community (APSC), ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), and ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community (ASCC), as well as the Initiative for ASEAN Integration (IAI) Work Plan III and the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity (MPAC) 2025. JAIF also aims at promoting greater cooperation between ASEAN and Japan.

Since its first financial contribution, several additional funding supports have been pledged to the original JAIF, and as of 31 January 2019, the total contribution amounts to more than USD 668,000,000. JAIF has contributed not only to advancing ASEAN integration but also to strengthening ASEAN-Japan relations by implementing various projects in the areas of disaster management, counter terrorism, maritime cooperation, economic integration, small and medium-sized enterprises development, youth exchanges, Japanese language training, and others.
