International Standardization

Countries all over the world cooperate and address fire prevention policy through studies that promote a unified international standard for fire prevention equipment technology standards and testing methods.
In 1979, Japan joined the ISO/TC21 international standards for fire prevention equipment, and established a committee for domestic policy that was reorganized as the Japan Committee for ISO/T21 in 1987.
Consequently, the JFEII carries out activities that actively fulfill an international role and responsibility including equipping facilities for conducting tests concerning international standards for fire prevention equipment, conducting research and testing needed to formulate international standards, as well as participating in international meetings.
