The Study Group on Consumer Protection Rules (Chief investigator: NIIMI Ikufumi, professor emeritus, Meiji University) is constantly examining and reviewing the current consumer protection rules, which have been enhanced and strengthened by the 2015 and 2019 amendments to the Telecommunications Business Act.
In the 21st meeting in June 2020, the study meeting started vigorously discussing current issues in light of the impact of the spread of COVID-19 continuing from last year and changes in the overall social environment, including the development and deepening of the Internet of Things (IoT). As a result, a certain direction has now been obtained. Accordingly, the study meeting compiled the result into a draft report for 2021, and MIC has decided to make this appeal for opinions widely on the draft.
