The Integrated Regulatory Review Service (IRRS) mission concluded the peer review in Japan

The Integrated Regulatory Review Service (IRRS) mission  conducted the peer review on Japan’s regulatory infrastructure for nuclear safety and radiation protection between 11 and 22 January.
Mission’s experts said Japan’s regulatory body for nuclear and radiation safety has demonstrated independence and transparency since it was set up in 2012. The team also noted that it needs to further strengthen its technical competence in light of upcoming restarts of nuclear facilities.
The final mission report will be provided to the Japanese Government in about three months.
