OUTLINE OF ORGANIZATION
The Japan Machine Accessory Association (JMAA) conducts surveys on production and distribution, conducts research on technologies and safety issues, and facilitates standardization of equipment used in industrial machinery such as metalworking machines, non-metalworking machines, and so on, so that the machine tool industry in Japan may be further developed, while contributing to the growth of the economy and the national standard of living.
History of Association
Japan Machine Accessory Association was established and organizd in April 1955 by more than ten chuck manufacturers, which later included, as members, the manufacturers of peripheral instruments of production machines such as machine tools (e.g. cluch, tooling, ball screw, attachment, accessory, etc.) Currently, the association has been developed as an important factor of the industry, supporting metalworking business, while its products prevail wide into a variety of industrial machines. December 22, 1992, Japan Machine Accessory Association was reborn and made a new start, with its name and article of association changed (same in English name), committed to consolidate the systems in dealing with an expanded and more varied application due to systematized production and structural changes in machinery, as by defining "equipment used for industrial machines such as metalworking machines, non-metalworking machines, etc." as machine accessories.

Standards Related Machine Tools Equipment
The standard related to machine tools and equipment comprise the JMAA's standards (TES), the Japanese industrial standards (JIS) and the international standards (ISO). The TES standard (Tooling and Equipment Standard) are the industries' standards established by the producers' committee members of the JMAA.
The related JIS standards have been established through the prescribed procedures since the drafts were submitted to the METI's Industrial Science and Technology Policy and Environment Bureau, with JMAA becoming the drafting body including users and neutral members as the drafting committee members for multiple deliberations.
As for ISO, JMAA, becoming the domestic deliberative body of the several subcommittees (SC) etc., is engaged in preparing and revising the drafts of the international standards (ISO). JMAA is currently promoting rationalization of the international standards in cooperation with the Japanese Standards Association.
