The Personal Information Protection Commission ('PPC') released, on 30 June 2021, an English translation of the Act to amend the Act on the Protection of Personal Information (Act No. 57 of 2003 as amended 2020). In particular, the PPC highlighted that only the original Japanese text of the law has legal effect, and the translation is to be used solely as reference material to aid in the understanding of the law.
