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.

First, this assessment refers to the third International Decommissioning Peer Review Mission to Japan that took place from 9 to 17 February 2015.  The objective of the Mission was to provide an independent review of the activities associated with revisions to the planning and implementation of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant decommissioning.  A Preliminary Summary Report from the Mission is available here.

The IAEA assessment further looks at the sea area radioactivity monitoring results and other related information that has been made available.  The IAEA considers here that the situation in the marine environment is stable but should continue to be monitored.

The assessment indicates that the Agency 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 national regulatory limits from entering the food supply chain. 

Finally, 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.
