My Number Act (Japan)

The Japanese government issues a unique number to every resident of Japan (both citizen and non-citizen). This number, also referred to as the Social Benefits or Tax Number, is protected by the My Number Act. The Personal Information Protection Commission (PPC), which acts as Japan’s data protection authority, supervises and monitors compliance with the My Number Act.
