The Japan Local group was founded in 2012 as the first GFSI Local group.
Our mission is to enhance awareness of GFSI regionally and promote the Initiative as a local operation team.
What We Do
To implement the GFSI mission locally, we re-organised our working groups in May 2016. Our new strategy is “Promotion of the GFSI 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 Affairs WG’s mission is to prevent conflict with other certification programmes and seek convergence and harmonisation by developing a connection with Japanese regulators and industry groups.
The Communication WG’s mission is to lead 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.
