The European Data Protection Board (EDPB) has published a formal statement on the first review of the functioning of the adequacy decision with Japan. The EDPB statement follows the European Commission's report dated 3 April 2023. The EDPB evaluated the commercial aspects of the adequacy decision, taking into account relevant amendments to the Japanese legal framework. Concerning the access and use of personal data by Japanese public authorities, the EDPB notes that there aren't any substantial changes in the relevant legislation. However, they do welcome recent amendments in the Japanese data protection legislation that have brought it closer to EU General Data Protection Regulation standards.
