"the Japanese want harmonisation of standards" this is to simplify their export business to limit the number of product variations they have to build; of course they take the opposite approach at home simply to obstruct imports.

This is why it is important for UK to have control over which Standards are a mandatory part of FTAs.
Agreed,

There are only a few western mfrs. that bother to make JIS stuff, they can't make it at a competitive price, there is little domestic market, and the Japanese wouldn't buy it from them anyway.

I've spent enough time on the BS, ISO, and DIN sites, thanks, some of the standards I can recite in my sleep.
