Japan Environmental Governing Standards

The 2018 JEGS were promulgated in accordance with bilaterally agreed timelines following established procedures to satisfy USG mandated requirements. The USG has received GOJ documents related to the amendment of various Japanese environmental laws and regulations. Completed submissions from GOJ will be evaluated as part of the regular amendment cycle. In consideration of unique circumstances, relevant submissions related to the conservation of endangered species have been prioritized and evaluated by the USG, and subsequently incorporated into the JEGS via an out-of-cycle update as 2018 JEGS, Version 1.1. Evaluation are to ensure that any amendments are consistent with the goals of both countries.
