Followings are some examples of new international standards lead by JISC

[ Low modulus adhesives for exterior tile finishing ]

In October 2016, an international standard for adhesives for external tiles (ISO 14448: low modulus adhesives for exterior tile finishing) proposed by Japan and based on JIS, was officially published. These adhesives offer more flexibility and keep tiles safety installed longer than traditional mortar. This new standard is expected to promote the wider application of these organic adhesives in regions such as Southeast Asia, where the use of exterior tile finishing for buildings has increased in recent years.

[ Disaster evacuation signage ]

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games are expected to be a big draw for international visitors to Japan. As part of preparations to ensure the safety of visitors to the Games, JISC has established a new JIS standard for a “hazard specific evacuation guidance sign system,” featuring universally recognizable hazard-specific symbols. In 2016, JISC proposed this guidance sign system to the ISO as an international standard.
