Japanese Operating Committee

The JOC is ETAD's link to all Japanese activities concerning colorants.
ETAD's Japanese members discuss local developments, decide on common actions and updates the ETAD office in Basel accordingly, particularly on topics which will also affect non-Japanese members importing or manufacturing in Japan.


Key activity areas:

  • Addressing mainly organic pigments-related issues on ecology and toxicology arising in Japan
  • Following up Japanese legal & regulatory status/developments concerning ecology, health and safety
  • Keeping a close cooperation and communication with JDICA (Japan Dyestuff and Industrial Chemical Association)

Working together for safer colorants
