Japan's Reports on Conditions at TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station

On 17 February 2014, Japan has provided the IAEA with a comprehensive report on the events and highlights related to the recovery operations at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. The complete report is followed by IAEA comments and assessments of the material.

Primary conclusions from the Agency assessment of the material have not changed from the previous report and states that:

  • In general, it is expected that the situation onsite will remain very challenging as the recovery operations progress. Based on the information that has been made available, the IAEA considers that all members of the public are safe and that the food supply is safe and is being appropriately managed.
  • The Agency welcomes the Japanese Government's issuance of this information to the IAEA Member States and the public, detailing the current status of the recovery operations. The IAEA will continue to share such valuable information as it is provided.

In addition the Japanese Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) provided another news release on action related to TEPCO's fuel removal from Unit 4.

On 13 February 2014, the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) of Japan provided the IAEA with an update on radioactivity in seawater at TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (NPS).

The update on the daily monitoring by TEPCO of seawater near Fukushima Daiichi NPS indicates that the concentrations of all radionuclides (i.e. Cs-134, Cs-137, total Beta and H-3) were relatively stable from 3 to 9 February 2014 at the sampling points T-1 and T-2-1. The sampling points T-1 and T-2-1 near the Fukushima Daiichi NPS are sentinels to assess effects on the environment by incidents including a leakage of contaminated water. The NRA also provided an update on the sea area monitoring results for radioactivity obtained from sea water samples taken at a distance of two to 200 kilometers from TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi NPS.
