What labelling are required upon sales of foods in Japanese market?

Upon import, imported foods are subject to regulatory clearances on food safety, disease control for domestic animal and plants, and protection of fisheries resources. In addition, imported foods are subject to other regulations upon sales in Japanese market.

Labelling is one of significant regulatory requirements for imported foods on sales in Japan. The Food Labelling Act, the Measurement Act, the Act of Japanese Agriculture Standards (JAS) and others, apply labelling requirements for enforcing safety and quality control. When engaging in food-related business or marketing, different types of permits, licenses, registrations, or notifications are required. Recycling laws request identification marks for containers and packaging.
