    In contemporary society, issues pertaining to governance have become prevalent. Consequently, the significance of information governance is on a constant rise. ISO 30300 and ISO 30301 play a crucial role in this domain by defining fundamental concepts and terms associated with record management, outlining the requirements for a records management system, and presenting best practices for effective information governance implementation. These standards are also adopted and published as the Japan Industry Standards JIS X 30300 and JIS X 30301 on May 22, 2023, respectively. Additionally, ISO 30302, currently in development, will soon have its equivalent JIS standard, making these standards indispensable for establishing robust information governance frameworks in the digital environment.
