Project Recognition

 In order to apply for a determination of the expropriation commission, the project initiator must first obtain project recognition.
 In these proceedings, the project recognition authority (Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, or prefectural governor) assesses whether the project serves the public interest.
 Project recognition becomes effective as of the day on which it is notified.
 To ensure procedural transparency in the project recognition proceedings, the project recognition authority is in principle required to hold a public hearing and consult with a third party body.
