日本語: Orrick Library Seminar: 日本とEU間の相互の円滑な個人データ移転をどのように活用するか 

Orrick’s Global Japan Practice is hosting a series of “Orrick Library” seminars to explore legal issues in various fields in Japan as well as the United States, Asia and Europe. The next seminar will be held on Friday, December 14 from 9:00 am to 10:30 am.

It is expected that by the end of 2018, the European Commission and Japan will mutually acknowledge each other’s level of data protection laws as adequate. These mutual acknowledgements will significantly facilitate data transfers between both countries. Orrick data experts on Japanese and European data protection laws will discuss the impact of the decisions, and how companies should prepare to benefit from these facilitations.
This session will be presented by Dr. Christian Schröder, Head of IP/IT and Data Privacy Practice Group in Germany and Co-member of Orrick's Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Team, live from Tokyo.

The 90-minute seminar will cover the following topics:

  • The recent changes to the Act on the Protection of Personal Information (Act No. 57 of 2003) “APPI” in relation to international data transfers;
  • What measures do Japanese companies have to implement as regards data from the EU?
  • The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provisions on international data transfers and the recent guidance issued by the European data protection supervisory authorities on international data transfers;
  • What is the effect of the acknowledgement of Japan as safe third country?
  • Measures to facilitate data transfers

Tokyo Litigation partners, Yoshihiro Takatori (Dai-Ichi Tokyo Bar Association) and Shinsuke Yakura (Dai-Ichi Tokyo Bar Association) and managing associate Kei Kato (Dai-Ni Tokyo Bar Association), will also offer additional comments from a Japanese law perspective.
