PRACTICE AREAS

Environment and Energy Chemical Regulation and Waste Disposal

As for chemical substances, regulation was tightened recently, thus certain uses and production of certain chemicals are now strictly limited.  For this reason, upon importing goods from abroad, we can provide you with support in complying with the Japanese regulations and government based on our extensive knowledge and experience.

As for waste disposal, disputes regarding consignment of collection, transport and disposal operations often occur as waste producers are generally responsible for waste management.  In addition, because waste inevitably results from business activity, there are cases in which the handling of waste disposal may lead to disputes, especially in mergers and acquisitions of companies.  We have attorneys with thorough knowledge on the related laws and regulations such as the Waste Disposal Act as well as industry practice to adequately respond to these situations.
