I couldn’t tell what the Act was from the link so I googled it :sweat_smile: for anyone else in the same boat:

our Japanese members submitted the “Workers Cooperative Act” for revision, which if passed, will enable worker cooperatives to be set up with their specific legal form.

Historically, Japan has no single cooperative law, but instead every sector has its own. This has posed challenges for starting a new cooperative, and it has been a struggle for worker cooperatives since their inception.
