Japan Local group was founded in 2012 as the first Local group of GFSI. Our mission is to enhance awareness of GFSI in local area and promote as a local operation team.

What we do?

To implement the GFSI mission in local, we re-organized our WGs in May 2016. Our new strategy is "GFSI promotion approach from supplier-specific to industry wide."

GFSI Japan Local group consists of three working groups and 1 taskforce governed by the Steering committee.

Japan regulatory affairs WG’s mission is to prevent conflict with other schemes and seeking convergence and harmonization by developing a connection with Japanese regulators and Industry groups..

Communication WG’s mission is to have a proactive communication to enhance GFSI recognition for Japanese stakeholders by using various medias (SNS, Exhibition, Magazine, Industry specific journal etc).
