JAPAN SAFE GOODS (SG) MARK

 

Launched in 1973 by the Consumer Product Safety Association (CPSA) in accordance to the Consumer Product Safety Act, the SG (Safe Goods) Mark certification establishes a landmark for consumer safety and acts as an important guide for consumers in identifying safe products in the Japanese market.

The product scope for SG Mark certification covers a wide range of selected consumer products that could pose potential danger to human life or cause injuries in terms of their structure, material and or usage. Products bearing the SG Mark have met SG Standards that have been formulated based on the expertise and opinions of consumers, manufacturers, distributors, testing & inspection institutes, and government offices to ensure safety compliance.

 

SG Mark Certification - Product Scope Includes:

  • Group 1. Product for Babies & Infants
  • Group 2. Goods for the Aged
  • Group 3. Furniture & Household Utensils
  • Group 4. Kitchen Utensils
  • Group 5. Equipment for Sport & Leisure
  • Group 6. Fitness Equipment for Home Use
  • Group 7. Equipment for Bicycle & Automobiles
  • Group 8. Others

Authorization to bear the SG Mark can be obtained through testing and product examination by accredited service providers. Product examination is applied using two different methods - ‘Lot Certification’ and ‘Plant Registration & Product Type Confirmation’. ‘Lot Certification’ involves authorized inspection institute examination of products and ‘Plant Registration & Product Type Confirmation’ requires manufacturers to show sufficient manufacturing capability to produce the adequate product type continuously. Further information concerning the SG Mark and certification procedures can be found at the ‘Official SG Mark Website’.
