Practical Information

 The Japan Industrial Standards Committee (JISC), a body attached to METI and in charge of surveying and deliberating on industrial standards, offers searchable databases on its website. They are however in Japanese.

 The Japan Standards Association (JSA) used to be attached to METI as well,  is presently independent foundation.  It has a wide scope of activities with regard to Japanese and international standards.  What makes the JSA interesting is that they sell English translations of JIS documentation and a searchable database in English to obtain information. The database is also useful to determine whether a particular JIS standard has equivalency with international standards such as ISO. (Example)
