Construction licences

In order to win contracts in Japan, consultants or contractors need a construction licence. Firms are assessed on sales, the number of engineers employed, capabilities, past performance and the firm's 'standing'.

Licences are graded according to the firm's overall rating, giving access to projects of a predetermined type and maximum value.

Licences cost more than £400,000/year to renew. UK firms interested in the Japanese market should gain access through partnership with local companies.
