The workshop provided an opportunity to discuss the major elements at stake for the structuring of a nuclear or radiological post-accident recovery management framework and to interact with Japanese governmental organisations as well as discussing and sharing non-governmental stakeholders experience in the recovery process. This event was open to international, national and local governmental representatives, people from the Fukushima prefecture, and researchers.
The sessions dealt with the following topics:
The area of recovery management (RM) has been of interest within the Committee on Radiological Protection and Public Health (CRPPH) of the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA). In April 2018, the CRPPH agreed that RM work should be driven by the CRPPH and performed together with experts from the Working Party on Nuclear Emergency Matters (WPNEM). Within this framework, the CRPPH Expert Group on Recovery Management (EGRM) was created at the beginning of 2019 with the main objective of assisting NEA member countries in planning and improving their preparedness for recovery by producing guidance on how to develop a nuclear or radiological post-accident recovery management framework which can be adapted to national conditions.
The symposium took place in the Sanjo Conference Hall at The University of Tokyo (7-3-1 Hongo, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo 113-8654).
