Japanese Government outlines framework for "Action Program" to decrease government
intervention in all standards and certification systems in order to improve access to
the Japanese market. the Japanese government is studying the following steps to
reduce government intervention:
1. Reduce the number of items that require application through the introduction
of the package-approval system.
2. Shift to self-certification and away from government certification.
3. Reduction or easing of standards.
4. Control establishment of new systems.
5. Re-study standards and certification systems which are not based on specific
laws in an effort to abolish them.
6. Acceptance of inspection data from other countries and inspection authorities
in other countries. If inspection data meets certain fixed conditions it
will be accepted as a general principle.
7. Participation of representatives of interested foreign countries as members
of the Experts Committee of the JAS investigation Council, according to need.
8. Co-ordination and conformity with International standards, in principle.
9. Simplification and speeding up of certification procedures.

United Kingdom lowers maximum levels of lead in canned foods in an effort to
bring the limits for lead in canned foods in line with the limits in
non-canned foods. New regulations have been placed before the British
Parliament that would reduce the statutory maximum levels of lead permitted in
canned foodstuffs. Currently canned foods are subject to a limit of 2.0 mg/kg
and canned fish to a limit of 3.0 mg/kg. Under the new regulation the
majority of canned foods would have to comply with the general limit of 1 mg/kg
Separate new limits have been specified at reduced levels for corned beef and
condensed milk. Foods canned prior to December 31, 1985 which comply with the
existing limits will be allowed for sale for two more years until December 31,
1987 to allow time for these canned foods to pass through the distribution
Results of British survey on consumer understanding of and requirements for
fat content and nutritional labelling were announced by the United Kingdoms'
Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. the survey was commissioned as a
result of the COMA report on diet and cardiovascular disease. The survey
showed that the British consumer preferred labelling which used words and
sentences in plain English. They generally welcomed information on nutrition
as long as the labels were not too instructional or judgemental. Detailed
labelling was not well received, although the consumer felt that a broader
range of information than fat content alone was desirable. Over two-thirds of
the surveyed respondents thought that food labels should show protein and
vitamins. More than half felt that it was important to show fat, sugar,
calories, salt and iron. Copies of the complete report "Lonsumer Attitudes to
and Understanding of Nutritional Labelling: Summary Report" are available from
the Consumers Association, Castlemead, Gascoyne Way, Hertford SG14 1LH, United
Kingdom at a cost of 30 British pounds.

Canadians to issue guidelines on the use of the term "Natural" on packaged
foods. The Department of Consumer and Corporate Affairs in Canada has issued

describing criteria and a general definition on the use of the term "natural"
for food industry reference and use.
U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of irradiation for cut
or whole fresh pork carcasses at minimum dosage levels of 100 kilorads. Ihis
is expected to kill or halt the reproduction of Irichinella Spiralis, a
parasite that is sometimes found in hogs that will infest humans if not killed
by heat, processing or freezing. The low dosages of irradiation is not
intended to extent the products shelf-life. At the retail level the product
must carry a label that states that the product was "treated by gamma
HELPFUL HINISIN RESPONDING TO FOREIGN IRADE LEADS
Based on comments from firms to Foreign Agricultural Service representatives
aboard, there are two main reasons companies are unsuccessful in their
attempts to develop trade relationships from opportunities such as those
presented in this issue -- delays in responding to trade inquiries and
ineffective correspondence. Ihe following guidelines may prove helpful when
responding to trade inquiries.
ALWAYS REPLY QUlLKLY
USE 'ELEX. lelex is the communication mode expected by most foreign buyers.
If more details are required, a brief telephone call is also an effective way
to indicate your interest. Delay gives the edge to your competition. Unless
otherwise specified by foreign inquiry, correspondence in English is
ALWAYS RESPOND LOMPLELEL1
ON iOUR FIRM. Furnish bank and trade references, pertinent company history,
and relevant exporting experience. It is also useful to mail a copy of your
annual sales report. Establish your firm as a reliable source of supply.
ON YOUR PRODUCI. Supply complete product information. Use the metric system
of measurement. American standard weights, measures and dimensions have
little meaning in most overseas countries. When responding by mail,
descriptive and illustrative brochures should be included, but not relied on,
to do the whole selling job.
ON YOUR PRICE. Include full price information when possible, and a delivery
date. Quote the price requested or a CIF price (cost, insurance, and freight)
to a port in the inquirer's country. A freight forwarder will be able to help
you determine insurance and freight prices for the products involved. Specific
terms of payment should be clearly stated. Information provided should,
whenever possible, be sufficient for the customer to place an order without
the delay of further correspondence.
ALWAYS REPLM EFFECIIVELI
BE SPECIFIL. Ask specific questions to pinpoint buyer's needs. If the
inquiry does not clearly specify products or services desired, let the buyer
know what you have available. Do not neglect imprecise inquiries.
BE DISCRETE. Seek credit data from sources other than the overseas firm.
Personal requests for credit information are considered discourteous in many
countries. Such information is easily obtained from reliable and objective
sources such as your bank's international department.
BE ORIGINAL. When replying by mail, do not use form letters. Form letters
are frequently discarded by overseas buyers. Keep correspondence friendly and
interesting. Avoid using slang. Create an impression of personal and
BE ACLURA1E. Check the correct address of the foreign firm, whatever mode of
reply. When writing, do not discard the envelope until you are sure the
complete address (including the country) is on the firm's letterhead. The
return address should provide your company's full name and address, including
"U.S.A". After the zip code. Include your cable address and telephone number.
BE SMARI. Do not disregard inquiries with less-than-perfect English. Quite
possibly, it is a legitimate sales lead but the writer knows English only as a
second language. Also, if the printing quality of the stationery does not
meet standards you ordinarily expect, keep in mind that printing standards in
your correspondent's country might be quite different. Despite first
impression, the inquiry may be from a reputable, well-established firm.
FOLLOW-UP. If a reply is not received within a reasonable time, follow-up
with a second telex. You may have missed the original export opportunity, but
may still be able to begin a business relationship.
