NRC Discussing Post Fukushima Actions Next Week

A July 19 National Academy of Sciences committee meeting in Washington, D.C., will be the forum for the agency to discuss its actions on issues raised by the Japanese disaster.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will discuss its actions following the March 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant meltdowns during the National Academy of Sciences' July 19 initial committee meeting on an NRC-sponsored study into the disaster. The meeting's public session runs from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the NAS Auditorium, 2101 Constitution Ave. NW in Washington, D.C.

The NRC will describe the agency's Near-Term Task Force report, how the task force's recommendations have been prioritized, recent orders, and a request for information. The National Academy wants members of the public to register for the meeting, and this NAS website has details. Questions on the study, "Lessons Learned from the Fukushima Nuclear Accident for Improving Safety and Security at U.S. Nuclear Plants," can be emailed to Fukushima@nas.edu.

Congress required the project following a recommendation from the Blue Ribbon Commission on America's Nuclear Future, which examined alternatives for storing, processing and disposing of spent nuclear fuel. The NAS study, with a final report expected by mid-2014, will address the causes of the Fukushima incident; re-analysis of previous NAS studies on the safety and security of storing spent fuel and high-level radioactive waste; and lessons learned to improve commercial nuclear power plant safety.
