Japan Association for Simplification of International Trade Procedure.


JASTPRO : Japan Association for the Simplification of International Trade Procedures .

As part of history, this movement emerged in the Nordic countries since 1950.

The bewildering maze of rules and regulations that accompanied the rapid expansion of world trade at that time, caused great concern among the major trading nations, particularly the European ones that had to comply with the rising costs of the rules and regulations governing International Trade.

In itself, the JASTPRO definition results as: The systematic rationalization of procedures and documentation for the International Trade procedure.

That is, they are all those activities, practices and formalities necessary to collect, present, communicate and process the data necessary for the movement of goods in the International Trade sector.
