Voices of Support for Japan
The GDPR for Japanese businesses: what do you need to know and how can you prepare?


The GDPR for Japanese businesses:
what do you need to know and how can you prepare?

This event is now fully booked

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply as from 25 May 2018.
It will significantly strengthen existing EU data protection rules and impose new obligations.
Sanctions for non-compliance will include fines up to the greater of €20m or 4%
of the global annual turnover of any infringer. Meanwhile, the EU Commission
and the Japanese government are discussing the possible recognition
of Japan’s adequacy in relation to its protection of personal data.
Such adequacy, if recognised, would greatly facilitate EU-Japan data transfers.

With only a few months left, proper guidance is critical to enable companies to comply in due time.

For this purpose, the Belgium-Japan Association & Chamber of Commerce (BJA)
and the global law firm Linklaters LLP are jointly organising a seminar
with McKinsey aimed at companies with activities in Japan.
