NRA Has More Bad News For Japan’s Nuclear Industry

The NRA announced that they considered it “difficult” to complete checks on all of Japan’s nuclear plants within 3 years. The 3 year time frame is the goal of the current government to determine their nuclear energy policy. The process would include any needed construction to bring a plant up to the new standards that still need to be written, adding to delays.

The NRA also announced that all reprocessing facilities would be subject to the same safety standards as nuclear power plants. This would require facilities such as Rokkasho to have to meet these standards in order to be allowed to operate. There have been concerns that the area the Rokkasho reprocessing facility sits on is near some major faults.
