The “Financial Instruments and Exchange Law” (commonly referred to as J-SOX) became law on November 8, 2006. The Japanese law now mandates that TSE listed companies, their subsidiaries and affiliates become compliant for fiscal years beginning on or after April 1, 2008. The J-SOX requirements are incorporated in the legislative draft which covers new enactments of, and amendments to, various laws related to financial instruments and SEC Laws. Our panel of experts will discuss the ramifications for potentially affected businesses and provide insights on a range of topics including the new Japanese Reforms; the requirements of J-SOX; the potential impact on U.S. based subsidiaries and affiliates of Japanese companies; lessons learned from SOX efforts; and suggested approaches toward compliance.
