Article 21(1)Pursuant to the provisions of Order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, at least once a year, the Minister for Internal Affairs and Communications must determine the level of charges that is generally found feasible for designated telecommunications services specified by Order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications as those having a significant influence on the interests of users in light of their content, the scope of users, and other factors (hereinafter referred to as "specified telecommunications services"), in consideration of reasonable costs under efficient management, commodity prices, and other economic circumstances, for each type of specified telecommunications services specified by Order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, by using a charge index (meaning figures to represent the level of charges for each type of telecommunications service, which are calculated by using the methods specified by Order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications considering charges based on the distance and speed of communications and other classifications as well as the amount of traffic, the number of circuits, and other factors to which the charges are applied; hereinafter the same applies), and must notify the telecommunications carrier that provides the specified telecommunications services of the charge index (hereinafter referred to as "the standard charge index") by the period before the date on which the standard charge index becomes applicable as specified by Order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications.
特定電気通信役務を提供する電気通信事業者は、その提供する特定電気通信役務に関する料金を変更しようとする場合において、当該変更後の料金の料金指数が当該特定電気通信役務に係る基準料金指数を超えるものであるときは、第十九条第一項又は前条第一項の規定にかかわらず、総務大臣の認可を受けなければならない。
(2)Notwithstanding the provisions of Article 19, paragraph (1) or paragraph (1) of the preceding Article, if a telecommunications carrier that provides specified telecommunications services intends to change charges for those services, and the charge index after the change exceeds the standard charge index for those services, it must obtain authorization from the Minister for Internal Affairs and Communications.
総務大臣は、前項の認可の申請があつた場合において、基準料金指数以下の料金指数の料金により難い特別な事情があり、かつ、当該申請に係る変更後の料金が次の各号のいずれにも該当しないと認めるときは、同項の認可をしなければならない。
(3)The Minister for Internal Affairs and Communications must grant the authorization as set forth in the preceding paragraph, if an application for the authorization set forth in the preceding paragraph is filed, and the Minister finds that there are special circumstances making it difficult to offer charges based on a charge index that is equivalent to or less than the standard charge index and that the charges after the change requested in the application do not fall under any of the following items:
料金の額の算出方法が適正かつ明確に定められていないこと。
(i)the methods of calculating charges are not properly and explicitly specified;
特定の者に対し不当な差別的取扱いをするものであること。
(ii)the charges after the change treat certain persons in an unfair and discriminatory manner; and
他の電気通信事業者との間に不当な競争を引き起こすものであり、その他社会的経済的事情に照らして著しく不適当であるため、利用者の利益を阻害するものであること。
(iii)the charges after the change lead to unfair competition with other telecommunications carriers or are extremely inappropriate in light of social and economic circumstances, and thereby impair the interests of users.
総務大臣は、基準料金指数の適用後において、当該基準料金指数が適用される特定電気通信役務に関する料金の料金指数が当該基準料金指数を超えている場合は、当該基準料金指数以下の料金指数により難い特別な事情があると認めるときを除き、当該特定電気通信役務を提供する電気通信事業者に対し、相当の期限を定め、当該特定電気通信役務に関する料金を変更すべきことを命ずるものとする。
(4)If the standard charge index is applied, and the charge index for the specified telecommunications services to which that standard charge index is applicable exceeds that standard charge index, the Minister for Internal Affairs and Communications is to order the telecommunications carrier that provides the specified telecommunications services to change the charges for those services within a reasonable period designated by the Minister, except for the cases in which the Minister finds that there are special circumstances making it difficult to offer charges based on a charge index that is equivalent to or less than the standard charge index.

(5)If a telecommunications carrier installing the telecommunications facilities that were formerly Category I designated telecommunications facilities provides telecommunications services (limited to universal telecommunications services) by using those facilities, and charges for those services have been authorized pursuant to the provisions of paragraph (2) as of the time of the cancellation of the designation under Article 33, paragraph (1), the charges are deemed to be those specified by the notified contract conditions.
特定電気通信役務を提供する電気通信事業者は、第二項の規定により認可を受けるべき料金については、同項の規定により認可を受けた料金によらなければ当該特定電気通信役務を提供してはならない。ただし、次項の規定により当該特定電気通信役務の料金を減免する場合は、この限りでない。
(6)A telecommunications carrier that provides specified telecommunications services must not do so unless their charges to be authorized pursuant to the provisions of paragraph (2) are in accordance with those which have been authorized pursuant to the provisions of that paragraph;provided, however, that this does not apply if charges for those services are reduced or exempted pursuant to the provisions of the following paragraph.
特定電気通信役務を提供する電気通信事業者は、総務省令で定める基準に従い、第二項の規定により認可を受けた当該特定電気通信役務の料金を減免することができる。
