Adequacy Agreement Japan

On 23 January 2019, the European Commission (Commission) adopted with immediate effect its adequacy decision concerning Japan (adequacy decision). The adequacy decision allows the transfer of personal data without additional safeguards between the EU and Japan, creating “the world`s largest space for secure data flows”. At present, the UK, as an EU Member State, is subject to and can benefit from mutual adequacy decisions between the EU and Japan. . . .
