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-organised our working groups in May 2016. Our new strategy is "GFSI promotion approach from supplier-specific to industry wide."

The GFSI Japan Local group consists of four working groups governed by the Steering Committee: 

  • The Japan Regulatory Wffairs WG’s mission is to prevent conflict with other certification programems and seek convergence and harmonisation by developing a connection with Japanese regulators and industry groups.
  • The Communication WG’s mission is to have a proactive communication to enhance GFSI recognition for Japanese stakeholders by using various media (SNS, Exhibition, Magazine, Industry specific journal etc).
  • The Global Markets Programme WG’s mission is to promote the use of the Global Markets Programme and to ensure the competency of assessors/consultants.
  • The Primary WG’s mission is to disseminate the Global Markets Programme for Primary Production.
