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

The Japanese Government has provided the IAEA with a report that summarizes the events and highlights the progress related to recovery operations at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. The IAEA has provided its assessments which is contained in full at the end of the report.

Based on the sea area radioactivity monitoring results in all five areas and other related information that has been made available, the IAEA considers that the situation in the marine environment is stable but should continue to be monitored.

The IAEA considers that the multi-layered countermeasures could contribute to reducing the risks associated with groundwater ingress into the basement of the buildings, the continued accumulation of contaminated water to be treated and stored on site and the uncontrolled discharge of radioactivity into the sea.

Based on the information made available, the IAEA acknowledges that TEPCO is making progress towards achieving completion of the spent fuel removal from Unit 4 in line with the targeted schedule.

The IAEA considers that systems are in place and are being implemented that prevent food and agricultural products with levels of caesium radionuclides in excess of the legal limits from entering the food supply chain.

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.
