     How can I become eligible for labeling my product "organic" in Japan?

     According to the Japan Agriculture Standard (JAS) regulations for product labelling all products labeled as organic must be certified by a Registered Certification Organization (RCO) and must display the JAS logo, as well as the RCO's name. RCOs are required to be accredited by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forest (MAFF). http://www.maff.go.jp/soshiki/syokuhin/hinshitu/e_label/index.htm See also the section on standards and regulations, as well as the list of accredited certification bodies, on this web page.
