ABSTRACT

Reflections on Fukushima: NRC Senior Leadership Visit to Japan, 2014   [open pdf - 5MB]

"Three years after the March 11, 2011, natural disaster and nuclear accident in Fukushima, Japan, the leadership and staff of the U.S.Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) continue to express their sadness at the loss of life and destruction caused by the earthquake and tsunami. At the same time, the NRC stands in awe and admiration of the resilience and determination of the Japanese people as they rebuild their communities and their lives. The NRC sees Japan as an inspiration to the world and commends its Japanese colleagues for openly sharing the lessons learned from the accident with the international community. The knowledge gained from this work is invaluable and allows both nuclear power plant operators and regulators around the world to better understand the effects of extreme natural events and to take actions to enhance safety."
