Flow of Information Disclosure Procedures
1. Inquiries and consultation regarding disclosure requests
We recommend that you first contact the Public Information Office when making a request for access to information. Depending on the nature of the request, we may be able to respond by providing information in our publications. In this case, no disclosure fee is required, and in some cases, information can be obtained on the spot.
2. Submission of disclosure request form, payment of disclosure request fee, and decision on disclosure or nondisclosure
To request disclosure, please submit the prescribed ” Request Form for Disclosure of Corporate Documents ” to the Information Disclosure Office.
At that time, a disclosure request fee of 300 yen per corporate document must be paid.
Upon receipt of a written request for disclosure, the University will identify the relevant documents by contacting the relevant university departments, etc., and will consider the decision to disclose or not to disclose, etc., in light of the criteria.
In response to the request, the University will make a decision within 30 days from the date of the request whether to “disclose all or part of the corporate documents” or “not disclose all of the corporate documents.
However, if it is difficult to make a disclosure decision, etc. within 30 days due to administrative difficulties or other justifiable reasons, the deadline may be extended for up to 30 days.
In either case, the claimant will be notified in writing.
