Our Activities

Activities of an accredited personal information protection organization

As an accredited personal information protection organization provided in the Act on the Protection of Personal Information, JIPDEC manages incidents and complaints received from consumers regarding covered business operators processing of personal information.
We also provide advice and information on the handling of personal information and anonymously processing information to covered business operators.
Covered business operators are either companies that have been granted the PrivacyMark or those that are recognized by JIPDEC as contributing to the protection and utilization of electronic information.
In the event of an accidental or intentional leak of personal information, prompt notification is required to be sent directly to the Personal Information Protection Commission (PPC), covered business operators of an accredited personal information protection organization can inform to the authorized personal information protection organization to which they belong and receive support for subsequent accident handling.

Certification and Promotion of The APEC-CBPR system

The APEC CBPR system was developed by participating APEC economies after seeking the views of industry and civil society in order to build consumer, business, and regulator trust in cross border flows of personal information. The APEC CBPR system has been in operation since 2011 and Japan has participated in the system since April 2014.
As an APEC CBPR certification organization (Accountability Agent, AA) in Japan, JIPDEC has certified that handling is compliant with the APEC privacy framework requirements when domestic operators transfer personal information to and from APEC economies.
