TOKYO -- Japan has failed to get on a new whitelist that exempts foreign companies from toughened scrutiny of investments in the U.S. The decision requires Japanese companies to be reviewed by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. when they plan to invest in key American technologies. 

Only three countries -- Australia, Canada and the U.K. -- have made the list, according to the U.S. Treasury Department.
