Does anyone know anything about bicycle certification in Japan? Certification is needed to sell bikes here if any assembly is required. I'd like to get certified so that I can import and sell bents but I can't read enough Japanese to take any paper tests.

Therefore I'd like to know if certification from the two main U.S.A. schools (United Bicycle Institute and Barnett Bicycle Institute) are accepted in Japan? I contacted these schools and they didn't know.

I think you would find that "bicycle certification" would be the least of your problems if you try
to do an importing and selling business in Japan.

Why not ask them your question?

Good luck....

I am asking "them" because Japanese people also read this forum. Besides it's the weekend here and I thought I could get some answers before Monday when I will contact the government office that deals with bicycle certification.

Also I know there are many obstacles. Being certified seem to me to be the first obstacle to clear.

Thanks for your valuable advice.

You're welcome....and please keep us informed of your progress.... I am sure it will be interesting
to many of our readers in the US as well as those in Japan.

And again, good luck....
