The draft guidelines were prepared to ensure transparency of JFTC’s law enforcement and enhance predictability by clarifying the requirements that will constitute the Exclusionary Private Monopolization, as the amendment of the Antimonopoly Act was approved by the Diet on June 3,2009. The summary of the amendments is also available in this website.
