The following is attributable to IAEA Spokesperson Gill Tudor:
“The IAEA is aware of media reports that Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) intends to rate leaks of radioactive water at TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station at level 3 on the International Nuclear Event Scale (INES).

“The IAEA views this matter seriously and remains ready to provide assistance on request.”
