METI Filing

As an accredited testing laboratory, we’ve helped thousands of manufacturers complete testing for their products and file for METI filing.

1. METI filing

Products that are exported to Japan and have applied for PSE certification are required to be filed with METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry).

Japan’s DENTORL Law (Electrical Device and Material Control Law) stipulates that 457 products must obtain PSE safety certification to enter the Japanese market. The regulation requires that Japanese purchasers must register and declare to METI in Japan within one month after purchasing goods, and must mark the purchaser's name or ID on the products for supervision and management in the future product sales process.

At present, there is no mandatory METI requirement for customs clearance. Only Amazon Japan requires merchants to provide METI filing and PSE certification.

2. More about METI filing

Below are the general processes for METI filing. Have questions or not sure where to start? Please fill out our short form, our expert will be glad to assist further.
