特定秘密の指定及びその解除並びに適性評価の実施に関し統一的な運用を図るための基準
Standards to Ensure Uniform Implementation in Connection with the Designation of Specially Designated Secrets and the Termination of the Designation as Well as the Conduct of the Security Clearance Assessment
Ⅰ 基本的な考え方
I. Basic Concept
1 策定の趣旨
1. Purport of formulation
特定秘密の保護に関する法律(平成25年法律第108号。以下「特定秘密保護法」という。)の統一的な運用を図るため、特定秘密保護法第18条第1項の規定に基づき、「特定秘密の指定及びその解除並びに適性評価の実施に関し統一的な運用を図るための基準」(以下「本運用基準」という。)を定める。
In order to ensure uniform implementation of the Act on the Protection of Specially Designated Secrets (Act No. 108 of 2013; hereinafter referred to as the "Specially Designated Secrets Act"), the Standards to Ensure Uniform Implementation in Connection with the Designation of Specially Designated Secrets and the Termination of the Designation as Well as the Conduct of the Security Clearance Assessment (hereinafter referred to as the "Implementation Standards") are hereby established based on Article 18, paragraph (1) of the Specially Designated Secrets Act.
本運用基準は、行政機関の長をはじめ、特定秘密保護法の運用その他特定秘密に関する業務を行う全ての者が、本運用基準が定める内容に従って特定秘密保護法の運用を統一的に行うことにより、特定秘密の漏えいの防止を図るとともに、その適正を確保するために定めるものである。
The Implementation Standards are established in order to prevent unauthorized disclosure of specially designated secrets and to ensure the proper implementation of the Specially Designated Secrets Act by having all people engaged in the implementation of the Specially Designated Secrets Act and other duties concerning specially designated secrets, including the Heads of Administrative Organs, uniformly implement the Specially Designated Secrets Act in accordance with the contents of the Implementation Standards.
なお、本運用基準における用語の定義は、特定秘密保護法又は特定秘密の保護に関する法律施行令(平成26年政令第336号。以下「施行令」という。)の定めるところによる。
The definitions of terms used in the Implementation Standards are as prescribed in the Specially Designated Secrets Act or the Order for Enforcement of the Act on the Protection of Specially Designated Secrets (Cabinet Order No. 336 of 2014; hereinafter referred to as the "Enforcement Order").
2 特定秘密保護法の運用に当たって留意すべき事項
2. Matters to note when implementing the Specially Designated Secrets Act
(1) 拡張解釈の禁止並びに基本的人権及び報道・取材の自由の尊重
(1) Prohibition of expansive interpretation and respect for the fundamental human rights and the freedom of news reporting or news coverage
特定秘密保護法は、第22条第1項及び第2項において、その適用に当たっては、これを拡張して解釈して、国民の基本的人権を不当に侵害するようなことがあってはならず、国民の知る権利の保障に資する報道又は取材の自由に十分に配慮しなければならないこと、及び出版又は報道の業務に従事する者の取材行為については、専ら公益を図る目的を有し、かつ、法令違反又は著しく不当な方法によるものと認められない限りは、これを正当な業務による行為とするものとすることを定めている。当該規定は、行政機関等における解釈適用の準則、すなわち、特定秘密保護法の運用その他特定秘密に関する業務を行う全ての者が特定秘密保護法を解釈適用するに当たって従わなくてはならない基準である。特定秘密保護法の運用その他特定秘密に関する業務を行う全ての者は、当該規定の内容を十分に理解し、以下の点に留意しなければならない。
The Specially Designated Secrets Act provides the following in Article 22, paragraphs (1) and (2): when applying the Specially Designated Secrets Act, its interpretation must not be expanded to unfairly violate the fundamental human rights of the citizens, and due consideration must be paid to the freedom of news reporting or news coverage, which contributes to guaranteeing the citizens' right to know; and the act of news coverage by persons engaged in publishing or news reporting is to be treated as an act in the pursuit of lawful business as long as it has the sole aim of furthering the public interest and is not found to have been done in violation of laws or regulations or through the use of extremely unjustifiable means. These provisions are rules for interpretation and application by Administrative Organs, etc.; in other words, they are standards which all people engaged in the implementation of the Specially Designated Secrets Act and other duties concerning specially designated secrets must observe when interpreting or applying the Specially Designated Secrets Act. All people engaged in the implementation of the Specially Designated Secrets Act and other duties concerning specially designated secrets must sufficiently understand the contents of these provisions, and note the following points:
ア 特定秘密保護法が定める各規定を拡張して解釈してはならず、厳格にこれを適用すること。
A. The provisions of the Specially Designated Secrets Act must not be expansively interpreted, and they should be rigorously applied.
特に、特定秘密保護法第3条第1項、第4条及び別表各号については、この点により一層留意し、本運用基準Ⅱ1、Ⅱ4(1)、Ⅲ1(1)等の規定に従って、必要最小限の情報を必要最低限の期間に限って特定秘密として指定するものとすること。
In particular, this point should be specially noted with regard to Article 3, paragraph (1), Article 4, and the items of the Appended Table of the Specially Designated Secrets Act, and the minimum information necessary should be designated as a specially designated secret only for the minimum period necessary in accordance with II. 1., II. 4. (1), III. 1. (1), etc. of the Implementation Standards.
イ 憲法に規定する基本的人権を不当に侵害することのないようにすること。特に、適性評価の実施に当たっては、プライバシーの保護に十分に配慮しなければならないこと。
B. The fundamental human rights prescribed in the Constitution may not be unfairly violated. In particular, due consideration must be paid to privacy protection when conducting the Security Clearance Assessment.
ウ いわゆる国民の知る権利は、憲法第21条の保障する表現の自由や、憲法のよって立つ基盤である民主主義社会の在り方と結び付いたものとして、十分尊重されるべきものであること。特に、報道又は取材の自由については、国民の知る権利を保障するものとして十分に配慮することとし、出版又は報道の業務に従事する者と接触する際には、特定秘密保護法第22条第1項及び第2項の規定を遵守すること。
C. What is known as the "citizens' right to know" should be sufficiently respected as the right connected to the freedom of expression guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution, and to what a democratic society, which serves as the foundation for the Constitution, should be. In particular, due consideration should be paid to the freedom of news reporting or news coverage, which guarantees the citizens' right to know, and when contacting persons engaged in publishing or news reporting, the provisions of Article 22, paragraphs (1) and (2) of the Specially Designated Secrets Act must be observed.
(2) 公文書管理法及び情報公開法の適正な運用
(2) Proper implementation of the Public Records Management Act and the Act on Access to Information
行政文書(公文書等の管理に関する法律(平成21年法律第66号。以下「公文書管理法」という。)第2条第4項に規定する行政文書をいう。以下同じ。)は、公文書管理法に基づき管理され、また、行政機関の保有する情報の公開に関する法律(平成11年法律第42号。以下「情報公開法」という。)に基づく開示請求がされた場合には、情報公開法第5条各号に掲げる不開示情報を除き、開示されることとなる。
Administrative Documents (meaning the administrative documents prescribed in Article 2, paragraph (4) of the Public Records and Archives Management Act (Act No. 66 of 2009; hereinafter referred to as the "Public Records Management Act"); the same applies hereinafter) are managed under the Public Records Management Act, and when a disclosure request is made under the Act on Access to Information Held by Administrative Organs (Act No. 42 of 1999; hereinafter referred to as the "Act on Access to Information"), they are disclosed unless they are any of the non-disclosure information set forth in the items of Article 5 of the Act on Access to Information.
特定秘密である情報を記録する行政文書も、公文書管理法及び情報公開法が当然適用される。すなわち、特定秘密である情報を記録する行政文書についても、指定が解除され、又は指定の有効期間が満了し、当該行政文書の保存期間が満了した場合に、歴史公文書等(公文書管理法第2条第6項に規定する歴史公文書等をいう。以下同じ。)に該当するものは、国立公文書館等に移管されることとなる。また、何人も、情報公開法に定めるところにより、行政機関の長に対し、特定秘密である情報を記録する行政文書の開示を請求することができ、開示請求を受けた行政機関の長は、情報公開法に基づき、開示・不開示の決定を行うこととなる。特定秘密に係る部分は、特定秘密に指定される情報の性質上、情報公開法第5条に規定する不開示情報の一部に該当するものと解されるが、実際に開示・不開示の決定を行う際には、当該部分が情報公開法上の不開示情報に該当するか否かについて厳格に判断する必要がある。
Administrative Documents which record information that is a specially designated secret are also subject to application of the Public Records Management Act and the Act on Access to Information. In other words, Administrative Documents which record information that is a specially designated secret are also transferred to the National Archives of Japan, etc. if they fall under the category of Historical Public Records and Archives (meaning the historical public records and archives prescribed in Article 2, paragraph (6) of the Public Records Management Act; the same applies hereinafter) when the Designation is terminated or the effective period of the Designation expires, and the retention period of the Administrative Documents expires. Any person may file a request for disclosure of Administrative Documents which record information that is a specially designated secret with the Head of an Administrative Organ pursuant to the provisions of the Act on Access to Information, and the Head of an Administrative Organ who receives a disclosure request decides on disclosure or non-disclosure based on the Act on Access to Information. The part of an Administrative Document that constitutes a specially designated secret is construed to constitute a part of the non-disclosure information prescribed in Article 5 of the Act on Access to Information given the nature of information designated as a specially designated secret, but when actually deciding on disclosure or non-disclosure, it is necessary to rigorously determine whether or not that part falls under the category of non-disclosure information under the Act on Access to Information.
なお、当該特定秘密に係る部分について不開示決定がなされた場合であって、当該不開示決定について不服申立てがなされたときは、行政機関の長の諮問に応じ、情報公開・個人情報保護審査会等(以下単に「審査会等」という。)が当該不開示決定の適否を調査審議することとなる。この場合において、審査会等は、必要があると認めるときは、情報公開・個人情報保護審査会設置法(平成15年法律第60号)第9条第1項(会計検査院法(昭和22年法律第73号)第19条の4において読み替えて準用する場合を含む。)の規定に基づき、当該行政機関の長に対し、当該不開示決定に係る行政文書の提示を求めることができ、提示を求められた当該行政機関の長は、特定秘密保護法第10条第1項第3号又は第4号の規定に基づき、審査会等に特定秘密を提供することとなる。そして、審査会等による調査審議の結果、行政機関の長が当該特定秘密に係る部分を開示する際は、その指定を解除することとなる。
If a decision of non-disclosure is made for the part constituting the specially designated secret and an objection to the decision of non-disclosure is filed, the Information Disclosure and Personal Information Protection Review Board, etc. (hereinafter simply referred to as the "Board, etc.") investigates and deliberates on the appropriateness of the decision of non-disclosure in response to consultation by the Head of an Administrative Organ. In this case, if the Board, etc. finds it to be necessary, it may request the Head of an Administrative Organ to present the Administrative Document subject to the decision on non-disclosure pursuant to Article 9, paragraph (1) of the Act for Establishment of the Information Disclosure and Personal Information Protection Review Board (Act No. 60 of 2003) (including as applied mutatis mutandis pursuant to Article 19-4 of the Board of Audit Act (Act No. 73 of 1947) following the deemed replacement of terms), and the Head of an Administrative Organ who receives the request for presentation provides the specially designated secret to the Board, etc. pursuant to Article 10, paragraph (1), item (iii) or (iv) of the Specially Designated Secrets Act. If, as a result of the investigation and deliberation by the Board, etc., the Head of an Administrative Organ discloses the part constituting the specially designated secret, the Designation of the specially designated secret is terminated.
特定秘密保護法の運用その他特定秘密に関する業務を行う全ての者は、これらの点について十分に理解した上で、特定秘密保護法だけではなく、公文書管理法及び情報公開法についても各規定の内容を正確に理解してその適正な運用を徹底し、国民に対する説明責務を全うしなければならない。
All people engaged in implementation of the Specially Designated Secrets Act and other duties concerning specially designated secrets must achieve their accountability to citizens by correctly understanding the contents of the provisions of not only the Specially Designated Secrets Act but also the Public Records Management Act and the Act on Access to Information after sufficiently understanding these points to complete their proper implementation.
3 特定秘密を取り扱う者等の責務
3. Responsibilities of persons handling specially designated secrets
(1) 特定秘密を取り扱う者は、特定秘密保護法、施行令、本運用基準及び各種関連規程の内容を十分に理解し、これらの適正な運用の確保を図りつつ、特定秘密の保護のための措置を適確に講じなければならない。
(1) A person handling a specially designated secret must appropriately take measures for protecting the specially designated secret, while sufficiently understanding the contents of the Specially Designated Secrets Act, the Enforcement Order, the Implementation Standards, and various related rules and ensuring their proper implementation.
(2) 特定秘密を取り扱う者は、自身が特定秘密の漏えいの働き掛けを受ける対象となり得ることを十分に認識し、施行令第12条第2項に基づき実施される特定秘密の保護に関する教育を受講するなどして規範意識を常に高く保たなければならない。
(2) A person handling a specially designated secret must constantly maintain high respect for social norms by sufficiently recognizing that the person may be approached to make unauthorized disclosure of the specially designated secret and receiving education concerning the protection of specially designated secrets that is implemented pursuant to Article 12, paragraph (2) of the Enforcement Order.
(3) 特定秘密を取り扱う者は、特定秘密の漏えいの働き掛けを受けた場合又はその兆候を認めた場合には、上司その他の適当な者へ報告するなど、適切に対処するものとする。
(3) If a person handling a specially designated secret is approached to make unauthorized disclosure of the specially designated secret or finds signs of such approach, the person is to appropriately deal with it by such means as reporting to the person's supervisor or any other appropriate person.
(4) (1)から(3)までは、特定秘密を取り扱わなくなった者についても、同様とする。
(4) (1) through (3) above also apply to a person who no longer handles a specially designated secret.
Ⅱ 特定秘密の指定等
II. Designation of Specially Designated Secrets
1 指定の要件
1. Requirements for Designation
特定秘密保護法第3条第1項は、行政機関の長が指定する特定秘密について、以下の3つの要件を規定している。
Article 3, paragraph (1) of the Specially Designated Secrets Act prescribes the following three requirements for a specially designated secret to be designated by the Head of an Administrative Organ:
・ 当該行政機関の所掌事務に係る特定秘密保護法別表に掲げる事項に関する情報であること(以下「別表該当性」という。)。
- The information concerns the matters set forth in the Appended Table of the Specially Designated Secrets Act pertaining to the affairs under the jurisdiction of the Administrative Organ (hereinafter referred to as the "Relevance to the Appended Table").
・ 公になっていない情報であること(以下「非公知性」という。)。
- The information is publicly undisclosed (hereinafter referred to as "Non-Public Nature").
・ その漏えいが我が国の安全保障に著しい支障を与えるおそれがあるため、特に秘匿することが必要である情報であること(以下「特段の秘匿の必要性」という。)。
- The information is particularly required to be kept secret due to the risk of causing severe damage to Japan's national security, if disclosed without authorization (hereinafter referred to as the "Particular Need to Be Kept Secret").
行政機関の長が指定しようとする情報が、この3つの要件を満たすか否かを判断するに当たっての基準は以下のとおりとする。
The following standards are used when the Head of an Administrative Organ determines whether or not the information to be designated satisfies these three requirements:
(1) 別表該当性
(1) Relevance to the Appended Table
別表該当性の判断は、以下のとおり特定秘密保護法別表に掲げる事項の範囲内でそれぞれの事項の内容を具体的に示した事項の細目に該当するか否かにより行うものとする。なお、事項の細目に該当する情報の全てを特定秘密として指定するものではなく、当該情報のうち、後述の非公知性及び特段の秘匿の必要性の要件を満たすもののみを特定秘密として指定する。
Determination on Relevance to the Appended Table is to be based on whether or not the information falls under the details of the matters set forth in the Appended Table of the Specially Designated Secrets Act as shown below, which specifically indicate the contents of the respective matters within the scope of the matters. Meanwhile, not all information that falls under the details of the matters is eligible to be designated as a specially designated secret, but only such information that also satisfies the later-mentioned requirements of Non-Public Nature and Particular Need to Be Kept Secret is designated as a specially designated secret.

Ⅳ 適性評価の実施
IV. Conduct of Security Clearance Assessments
1 適性評価の実施に当たっての基本的な考え方
1. Basic concept in conduct of Security Clearance Assessments
(1) プライバシーの保護
(1) Protection of privacy
適性評価は、評価対象者やその家族等のプライバシーに関わるものであることから、そのプライバシーの保護に十分に配慮しなければならない。したがって、評価対象者の選定に当たっては、過不足なく必要な者に範囲を限って行うようにしなければならない。また、適合事業者の従業者は行政機関の職員と異なる立場にあること等を考慮し、適性評価の実施に当たっては、適性評価について分かりやすい説明を行い、その実施についてよく理解を得なければならない。
Since a Security Clearance Assessment concerns the privacy of the Persons subject to Assessment and their family, etc., due consideration must be paid to protection of the privacy. Therefore, when selecting the Persons subject to Assessment, only the necessary people must be selected without excess or deficiency. Also, considering that Workers of an Eligible Contractor are in a different position from officials of an Administrative Organ, when conducting a Security Clearance Assessment, a comprehensive explanation about the Security Clearance Assessment must be given to the Workers to ensure that they understand the conduct of the Security Clearance Assessment well.
(2) 調査事項以外の調査の禁止
(2) Prohibition of examination of matters other than the prescribed matters to be examined
適性評価の調査は、特定秘密保護法第12条第2項各号に掲げる事項以外の事項について行ってはならず、例えば、評価対象者の思想、信条及び信教並びに適法な政治活動、市民活動及び労働組合の活動について調査してはならない。また、仮に調査の過程で調査事項に関係しない情報を取得した場合には、これを記録してはならない。
Examination in a Security Clearance Assessment must not be conducted for matters other than those set forth in the items of Article 12, paragraph (2) of the Specially Designated Secrets Act. For example, examination must not be conducted with regard to the thought, creed, or religion, or lawful political activities, civil activities, or labor union activities of the Person subject to Assessment. In addition, if any information that is unrelated to the prescribed matters to be examined is obtained in the course of examination, such information must not be recorded.
(3) 適性評価の結果の目的外利用の禁止
(3) Prohibition of use of the results of Security Clearance Assessment for any purpose other than the intended purpose
適性評価は、特定秘密の取扱いの業務を行った際に特定秘密を漏らすおそれがないことについての評価であり、人事評価又はその他の能力の実証を行うものではなく、人事評価のために適性評価の結果を利用等してはならない。
A Security Clearance Assessment is an assessment of whether a person is unlikely to disclose a specially designated secret without authorization when performing the duty of handling a specially designated secret, and it is not a personnel evaluation or any other verification of the person's ability. The results of a Security Clearance Assessment must not be used for personnel evaluation or the like.
(4) 基本的人権の尊重等
(4) Respect for fundamental human rights
適性評価に関わる者は、「すべて国民は、法の下に平等であつて、人種、信条、性別、社会的身分又は門地により、政治的、経済的又は社会的関係において、差別されない」と規定する憲法第14条を遵守するとともに、基本的人権を不当に侵害することのないようにしなければならない。
Persons involved in a Security Clearance Assessment must observe Article 14 of the Constitution, which provides that "all of the people are equal under the law and there shall be no discrimination in political, economic or social relations because of race, creed, sex, social status or family origin," and must not unfairly violate fundamental human rights.
