Established in 1974, the Association of Japan Instrumentation Industry was approved by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. It became an incorporated association in 1980.
Through profound progress and development in instrumentation and construction businesses, our association is aiming to contribute to the society by working on the improvement of the training and upgrading the level of highly skilled engineers, holding various research meeting, exchanging with other relevant organization, improving research and technology in instrumentation, rationalizing the management etc.
Our specific activities are as follows.
・Comprehensive research on instrumentation technology.
・Investigation research on rationalization of companies in the instrumentation and construction business
・Collection of the data on the instrumentation and construction businesses
・Research on materials, machines and tools necessary for the instrumentation and construction businesses and their improvement
・Handling of technical test, registration and certification for Instrumentation engineers
・Improving the technology and enhancing the capacity of instrumentation and construction businesses
・Submitting proposals and opinions to the government and other relater organization.
・Other than these ,we work to reach our goals.
Corporations and individuals engaged in the instrumentation and construction businesses which agree to our terms and conditions and have a permission for the electric construction sector, piping sector, machinery installation sector or telecommunication sector authorized by the provisions of the construction industry act.
Those who support our business.
Based on partial revision of “Construction Industry Act and Regulations Enforcement” of the “Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism seventy second Article” on April 1 2001, there has been some revisions in the system based on the “Construction Business Law Enforcement Regulations Article 17-2” as well.
In order to secure the construction technology of the construction company, the Land, Infrastructure and Transport Minister gets involved in construction work taken by the constructor company, inspects and certify the technologies and skills related to the construction work thought to be done by the construction company. Thus it is possible to qualify the ones who have improved the technologies etc. engaged in the construction work.
Based on this system, The Association of Japan Instrumentation Industry has been authorized as “the implementer of technologies and skills in investigation business” and carries the name for businesses such as technologies and skills inquiries as “Instrumentation engineering technology inspection”.
Past academic history of examinees is not required and only some years of working experiences in the instrumentation and construction work is needed. For more details, please refer to rules of Instrumentation engineering technology test and test qualification based on new rules.
Also, following examinees are exempted from all or partial theoretical test.
- Those who had passed the theoretical test are exempted from the theoretical test of the same level for the following two years.
- Those who already have certificate for electrical construction or piping management technology can be exempted from some of the subjects. For details, please refer to the section of each of the above test qualification.
Instrumentation engineering technology test is divided into first and second level. Those who passes the first level will be granted as first level instrumentation engineer and for those who passes the second level will be granted as second level instrumentation engineer.
Instrumentation engineers are obliged to attend a technical maintenance course at every five years interval. If they fail to attend the course without any reason, they will be unregistered.
