Fukushima Lessons Learned

Purpose: 

This workshop provides information on the accident at the Fukushima Diachi Nuclear Power Plant complex that occurred in March of 2011, and the follow-up activities by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to study the accident, and to obtain the lessons learned in order to make appropriate regulatory changes in the NRC requirements and oversight of the US nuclear power industry.

Scope: 

This workshop will provide an overview of the sequence of events, and discuss the activities and recommendations made by the NRC “Near Term Task Force” that was activated to provide the Commission recommendations as to what regulatory changes should be considered for US requirements. In addition, the Commission decisions as to how the recommendations would be dispositioned, and the status of implementation of new requirements will be discussed, including the initiatives of the US nuclear industry to meet the new requirements. The workshop will allow time for questions and discussion of how the US decisions may or may not be valid for consideration by the country or countries participating in the workshop.

Audience: 
Regulatory staff and management
