- Your password should be at least eight characters long. It must not be a commonly used word; Select a unique combination of letters and numbers.
Creating a strong password
To protect your RA account and your personal information, we highly recommend that you choose a strong password. The security of your account depends on the strength of your password.
RA accounts passwords should be at least eight characters in length, combine numbers and letters, and not include commonly used words. Here are some tips to help you create a strong password:
- Select a word or acronym and insert numbers between some of the letters.
- Include punctuation marks.
- Mix capital and lowercase letters.
Note:for your security, we recommend that you don’t reuse passwords associated with your email or any other type of account.
Verifying Your RA account: How it works
When you create a RA account, a verification message will be sent to the email address you specified. You need to click the link in that email to verify your account. Otherwise, you may not be able to create your account successfully.
Note:the email address you use to create your account should be an address you can currently access.
If you have already clicked the “I accept. Create my account” button to request a verification email, but have not received it, please contact us.

Who evaluates your submission?
- Please be aware that we will not be the ones evaluating your submission. Applications will be examined by the Review Board, which is part of the ISO. If the submission does not meet the requirements, it will be returned to you for clarification.
- The JPSEC RA only verifies the submission contains the necessary information and notifies you of the response to your submission.
Time of response for your submission
The Review Board will respond to your request for registration within seven months from the date of submission. Within that time period, the Review Board will meet at an official meeting of ISO/IEC JTC1/SC29/WG1 to evaluate your submission, make a decision, and draft the response.
- A proposed new JPSEC item should meet the following criteria:
- Unique- it must not duplicate a JPSEC item already defined
- Correct submission- the syntactically and technically correct submission along with all appropriate explanations of purpose. The proposed JPSEC item should be classified in one of the existing categories which are listed in register form.
- Utility- the new JPSEC item should demonstrate its utility to the public and give examples of use cases when relevant.
- During the review period, the JPSEC RA may require more information regarding the submission. Any omissions or errors in the submission, lack of implementation support, or related problems, may cause the rejection of the submission.
- Preference will be given to solutions that are more general, and proposed solutions that are highly vendor-specific may be returned to you to be made more general and more applicable to the general public.
You have the right to appeal a rejected submission if you believe that an error was made. You will be required to provide additional information at the request of the experts who are under the authority of WG1. They will provide a final and definitive response of acceptance or rejection.
A refused item may still be used, but it will not be allowed to claim standards and hence may become a de facto proprietary item.
In order to have a rejected item reviewed by the WG1, you must submit the appeal through the related organization from your country, specifying why the submission requires consideration by WG1.
If you cannot find related organization in your country, contact the JPSEC RA directly. We will do our best to assist you.
