Japan's new export controls on South Korean businesses are likely to disrupt supply chains for semiconductor chips worldwide and hit companies such as U.S.-based Apple Inc.’s operations, Nikkei Asian Review reported. Under new rules, Japanese suppliers must seek approval for exports of three semiconductor industry chemicals to South Korea, starting June 4. Japan's government expects export reviews to take about three months.
