The Japan Iron and Steel
Federation Standard ( JFS Standard )

1. Preface
The first editions of JFS Standards were established in 1996 by the Japan Iron and Steel Federation.  Since then, JFS Standards have been widely applied in the field of steels for manufacturing automobiles.

At the time of establishment, JFS Standards consisted of seven product standards and two test standards.  In the latest revision, one product standard and two test standards were withdrawn as of August 2014.  Currently JFS Standards consisted of six standards for steel product.

In the product standards, the requirements on steel sheets for automobile use, such as the mechanical properties, the dimensional tolerances, and the information at the time of ordering, are specified.  They also specify the requirements on the zinc coated steel sheets for automobile use, such as the coating mass and the chemical treatments.

The English versions of JFS Standards are available.  We are pleased to receive your order.

2. Recent revision
To update the information and the requirements, JFS Standards were revised as of April 2020, that are published as new 2020 editions.  Major revisions are as follows;

1) Steel sheet for hot pressing was added to JFS A 2001.
2)
Terms and definitions on steel sheets were added.
3)
In reflection of the recent quality improvement, chemical composition in JFS A 1001 was revised.
Errors in clause 14 of JFS A 3031 (English version) were corrected in August 2020. If you have already purchased JFS A 3031 (English version), please contact the Japan Iron and Steel Federation Standardization Center by e-mail and we will send you a PDF of the corrected part.
