JAPIA is dedicated to advancing the automotive parts industry by tackling various challenges related to auto parts, contributing to the growth of the Japanese economy, and improving people's lives. As of 2022, Asia remains the largest export destination for Japanese auto parts, with approximately ¥1.56 trillion worth of exports. As the automotive industry evolves, so do its regulations. JAPIA develops businesses that keep up with the automotive industry's changing structures and environmental concerns. Here are some of their other highlights:

• Chemical Substance Management: The JAPIA chemical substance control sub-committee plans to establish a conference body to track chemical substance regulations, analyze impacts, influence legislators on substance restrictions, and share information within the automotive supply chain.
• JAPIA's lobbying efforts are on the following substances: Dechlorane Plus, DBDPE, PFHxA, UV328, and BPA.
• Understand the regulatory trends in the Asia-Pacific, especially China ELV, which affects the global automotive supplier chain. The "Measures for the Administration of the Recycling of End-of-Life Vehicles" liberalized the remanufacturing of ELVs, allowing them to be given to qualified enterprises for recycling and remanufacturing.
• Cooperate with AIAG, CLEPA (European Association of Automotive Suppliers), and ACEA (The European Automobile Manufacturers' Association) to follow up on their end-of-life vehicles and related regulations and assess our impact.
