City hosts conference on trade quality assurance
HCM CITY (VNS)— An international conference on "Business Expansion by Conformity Assessment" organised by the Japan Quality Assurance Organisation and the local Quality Assurance and Testing Centre 3 begins in HCM City today.
"Together with the development of trade between Japan and Viet Nam, the demand for conformity assessment – including testing, inspection, certification and calibration – by a third party is becoming more and more important in that trade, especially in winning business partners' confidence and promoting trade facilitation," said Hoang Lam, deputy director of QUATEST 3, as the centre is known.
QUATEST 3 is a third-party conformity assessment agency.
As leading conformity assessment agencies in Japan and Viet Nam and members of Asia Network Forum, JQA and QUATEST 3 have co-operated in supporting enterprises from both countries, Lam told Viet Nam News.
JQA, established in 1957, has been providing certification service and developing the certification system in co-operation with Japanese electrical home appliances and consumer electronics manufacturing companies, transportation equipment companies, and others.
JQA also provides services such as calibration and verification of measuring instruments, testing and inspection of construction materials and machinery, and Japanese Industrial Standards certification.
"JQA and QUATEST 3 are always here for you when you have inquiries on international certification schemes and plans for exports to Japan," said Noriaki Kobayashi, Senior Executive Board Director&CEO of JQA. — VNS
