Later, in 1950, the name was changed to the Japan Automobile Body Industries Association, and in 1958, the method of joining local cooperative organizations was changed to an individual membership method.In December 1970, with the permission of the Ministry of Trade and Industry, the company was reorganized into an "incorporated association" To further revitalize the activities of the Industrial Association, in 1965 a material Subcommittee (associate member) was established by a company dealing with parts. In 1991, 9 branch offices were set up throughout the country to enhance the response to local issues. In 2004, the "Nihon Jidousya Kaikan" was opened to deepen the cooperation of automobile-related organizations, and the secretariat of the Japan Body Industries Association was relocated.
