The Law Governing JIS 

The Commercial Standardizing Law was revised in 2004 and the “JIS mark” ( product documentation system ) was modified ; since Oct 1st, 2005, the new JIS mark has been applied on re-certification. Usage of the old mark was authorized in the three-year transition period ( till Sep thirty, 2008 ), and each manufacturer getting new or replenishing documentation under the authority’s approval has managed to use the new JIS mark.
