This data category requires all national laws and statutes available to be available online, although it is not a requirement that information on legislative behaviour e.g. voting records is available. To satisfy this category, the following minimum criteria must be met:

  • Content of the law / status
  • If applicable, all relevant amendments to the law
  • Date of last amendments
  • Data should be updated at least on quarterly

Comments

Seems no restriction for its use but not clear, but unified bulk data seems not available (you have to download them one by one). English translation of those laws are also available (http://www.japaneselawtranslation.go.jp/) but not always up-to-date.
