Opportunities for EU & Japan Industrial and Innovation Cooperation in the Circular Economy for Strategic Metals
Thursday 23 June 2022 Digital Event
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.
