YKK WORLDWIDE NETWORK

Many manufacturers are now producing in multiple locations around the world as the globalization of manufacturing continues to expand.
Maintaining stable and constant quality has become one of the key concerns for many of the global manufacturers, and in order to support these companies, YKK has set up YFS - YKK Fastening Standards - to provide products of the same quality level, wherever and whenever they are purchased.
Each YKK production site is conducting various quality tests and reporting the results to Japan HQ on a regular basis in order to maintain and assure constant quality level.

YKK also maintains laws and regulations around the world concerning safety, environmental, and social issues to meet customer requests coming from various regions.
We have been reinforcing our quality management system, and in some cases, developed specific products to meet certain laws and regulations.

Many of our production sites have now acquired industry certifications, including ISO 9001, ISO 14001, Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Class I, etc., to provide objective information on the quality of our products and management system.

YFS zipper testing methods are based on JIS S3015 with reference to many zipper standards, such as ASTM D2061, BS 3084, DIN 3419, etc.
Following are some of the most common zipper tests:

YKK zippers meet JIS S3015 standard.
