On October 11, 2016, the Japan Fair Trade Commission ("JFTC") partially amended its "Guidelines Concerning the Interpretation of 'Specific Business Field' as defined in the Provisions of 'Monopolistic Situations'" and added additional fields that meet the criteria for the definition of "monopolistic situation," such as tablet manufacturing, security software, computer ticketing, and education by telecommunications. Further, on October 21, 2016, the JFTC set up a special point-of-contact on its website in order to gather information about suspicious conduct that may violate the Antimonopoly Act within the IT/digital-related business area. Previously, on August 2, 2016, the JFTC had issued a report on "Issues Concerning Competition Policy in the Mobile Phone Market," and on September 15, 2016, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry also issued a report introducing examples of electronic commerce deals that have anticompetitive effects, based on research conducted with the JFTC. The authorities seem to be strengthening the monitoring of these areas.
