Significant developments on adequacy findings between Japan and Europe

On 25 April 2018, Japan’s data protection authority published draft guidelines relating to adequacy findings for international personal data transfers from Europe to Japan (Guidelines).

If the Guidelines come into force in their current form, they will allow for personal data to be transferred from the EEA (which includes the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) to Japan without measures such as specific data subject consent or standard contractual clauses.
