Outline of JAMP Activities and JAMP AIS. Information transfer on chemical substances contained in products in the supply chain. Problems of information transfer on chemical substances contained in products in the supply chain.
Information transfer on chemical substances contained in products in the supply chain
Problems of information transfer on chemical substances contained in products in the supply chain
i） No scheme to transfer information of chemical substances contained in article
→ Economic burdens in responding to individual procurement surveys
ii） No common rules to manage chemical substances contained in articles
→ Lowering the confidence of the survey information, location of responsibility is unclear
JAMP believes developing and promoting the following schemes are urgent
The scheme to transfer the information of chemical substances which can be used to comply with the international regulations
The scheme to transfer the information of chemical substances contained in the products which can be used between worldwide industries
JAMP will propose a cross-industrial scheme to declare and to communicate the information contained in the products to solve such problems and also to comply with REACH.
On-way information transfer by using common tools of JAMP
Requests for using JAMP tools
Two-way information transfer (requests & replies)
Requests for the surveys
Transfer the information by using a commontools from upstream users to downstreamusers
Disharmonized procurement surveys from downstream users to upstream users
Basic policies of JAMP’s scheme are as follows;
(Substance / Preparations)
ＭＳＤＳ （chemical management）
ＭＳＤＳｐｌｕｓ （promoted by JAMP）
ＡＩＳ (promoted by JAMP）
AIS considers compatibility to the existing schemes
Various procurement surveys
ＡＩＳ （promoted by JAMP）
Standards of other industries (JIG, IMDS etc.)
AIS can be directly used
Chemical and physical change may occur during the converting process of substances/preparations to articles (Necessary AIS information will not be communicated unless the chemical substance management of this process is performed adequately.)
Target Substances under Management are likely to remain so in the foreseeable future .If needed, these laws and regulations would be revised or modified on the basis of the whole agreement of JAMP.

What is “included”?
If a substance listed in the relevant standard
① is intentionally added
② known to be contained
Substances information in addition to for “intentionally added” may be filled in
and transmferred by provider companies of MSDSplus in good faith and voluntarily
to downstream companies based on careful studies of process of manufacture ,
the possibility of inclusion and due date of information provision.
The final judgment for regal regulation
Whether substances in products fall under the category of declarable substances by the laws and regulations or not should be determined by each downstream companies responsibility.
Restriction on the more stringent standards
To set more stringent standards in MSDSplus should be restricted ,especially in the criteria of relevant standard substances.
Concurrent use with MSDS
Information on chemical products such as hazards and measures to prevent accidents is provided through the MSDS. The MSDSplus provides information by supplementing what the MSDS lacks. Therefore, in principle, the MSDS and the MSDSplus should be used together to transfer information.
When the content of the MSDSplus was included in the MSDS, it is also possible to provide information only through the MSDS, but it is considered necessary to take account of the response practically made by downstream companies, e.g., transfer that information to the supply chain by describing it in the remarks column of the MSDSplus or Item 16 of the MSDS. 。
Basic information to identify AIS
Issuing date, revision date, AIS reference number, language
2. Company information
Company ID, Issuing company, the window department,
3. Article information
Manufacturer, article name, model name
4. Composition information
Weight, structure level, quantity, material, substances to report,
voluntary reporting substances, applicable regulations
5. Other information
Reference documents, restrictions, dos and don‘ts
The information which needs to report down-stream companies (compiled based on the entries in the section 1-4.)
6. The information which needs to be reported
Weight, composition, auantity, material, applicable regulation
about the reporting substance
7. the specified chemical substance concentration per an article
substance name, concentration within an article
8.material information in an article
Material, material classification, material weight
(option) customer information
Company name, the person in charge,
the model No. indicated by the customer and so on
Receiving a request to publish MSDSplus or AIS
Classifying “preparation or article”
↓ It is regarded as article
If it is regarded as substance /preparation
You may use the following tool but you need to note the scope.
Identify product composition
Judgment if each ingredient is the substance which should be reported
Preparation supporting tool
Judge all compositions are the substance which should be reported
No ingredient need to be reported
At least one ingredient need to be reported
Report of non-inclusion
Original component 1 AIS
Original component 2 AIS
Original component AIS1
Original component AIS 2
Accumulate AIS1 and AIS2 data by every same material
Reduce the number of composition lines
Data amount compression and organization
Documents and tools which JAMP can provide and explain you
AIS version 2.0 format
AIS version 2.0 preparation procedure manual
AIS materials list version 2.0
AIS data input supporting tool (input supporting tool, integration and simplification tool β version)
AIS data input supporting tool operation manual
AIS integration and simplification tool operation manual
The function of the above tools
The above tools are developed in order to support AIS preparation and AIS integration/ simplification. They have the function which JAMP aims but are still on the way to be approved as JAMP official tools. Therefore JAMP provides you as a position of β version.
Material searching function in preparation supporting tool
AIS data input supporting tool has a simple function to search object materials. You can search materials and applicable regulation by using it but JAMP can’t guarantee the searching result is perfect. You shall confirm it by yourself.
