in\\ the\\ legal\\ and\\ economic\\ environments\\ of\\ states\\ in\\ different\\ parts\\ of\\ the\\ globe.\\ Japan,\\ however,\\ stands\\ out\\ as\\ one\\ which\\ has\\ taken\\ limited\\ steps\\ towards\\ comprehensive\\ regulatory\\ reform.\\ Developments\\ over\\ the\\ past\\ decade\\ suggest\\ that\\ regulatory\\ reform\\ has\\ now\\ become\\ central\\ to\\ the\\ economic\\ and\\ administrative\\ reforms\\ undertaken\\ by\\ the\\ Japanese\\ government.\\ The\\ European\\ Union\\ (EU)\\ has\\ been\\ increasingly\\ vocal\\ in\\ pushing\\ for\\ regulatory\\ reform\\ in\\ Japan.\\ The\\ EU-Japan\\ Joint\\ Declaration\\ 1991,\\ which\\ established\\ a\\ new\\ ‘partnership’\\ in\\ international\\ affairs\\ between\\ the\\ two\\ sides,\\ became\\ the\\ basis\\ on\\ which\\ a\\ dialogue\\ on\\ market\\ access\\ began\\ during\\ the\\ 1990s.\\ This\\ has\\ since\\ evolved\\ into\\ a\\ Regulatory\\ Reform\\ Dialogue\\ by\\ which\\ the\\ EU\\ and\\ Japan\\ exchange\\ proposals\\ for\\ removing\\ barriers\\ to\\ market\\ access\\ and\\ related\\ issues.\r\nThis\\ article\\ examines\\ the\\ nature\\ of\\ regulatory\\ reform\\ in\\ Japan,\\ and\\ analyses\\ the\\ Regulatory\\ Reform\\ Dialogue\\ against\\ the\\ background\\ of\\ the\\ EU-Japan\\ relationship.\\ Although\\ the\\ amount\\ of\\ influence\\ the\\ EU\\ has\\ exerted\\ on\\ Japan\\ during\\ this\\ period\\ of\\ reform\\ is\\ difficult\\ to\\ determine,\\ the\\ importance\\ of\\ the\\ dialogue\\ as\\ evidence\\ of\\ a\\ strengthening\\ of\\ the\\ ‘partnership’\\ should\\ not\\ be\\ underestimated.
