House of Commons approves bill to create Japanese version of DBS

The House of Representatives on Thursday passed a bill to create a Japanese version of the British Disclosure and Barring Service, to check whether people who have or are looking for a job that involves contact with children have a criminal record with regarding sexual crimes.

The bill aimed at preventing sexual offenses against children was unanimously adopted during a plenary meeting of the House of Representatives. The government and ruling parties aim to pass the bill during the current regular session of parliament, which ends in June, after deliberations in the House of Councilors.

Under the new legislation, schools, daycare centers, orphanages and other institutions will be required to check employees for sex crimes, provide staff training and set up consultation systems.
