Noda orders drafting nuclear safety standards



Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda has instructed a minister to draw up new standards for nuclear safety as a precondition for resuming the operation of 2 reactors at a nuclear power plant along the Japan Sea coast.

On Tuesday, Noda and 3 ministers concerned discussed the Nuclear Safety Commission's favorable assessment of the first round of stress tests on the reactors at the Ohi nuclear power plant in Fukui Prefecture.

The ministers were briefed by the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency on the findings of its investigation into the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

Some of the ministers said the safety standards proposed after the Fukushima Daiichi accident for preventing disasters are not clearly defined.

In response, Noda instructed Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Yukio Edano to come up with new standards for nuclear safety as a precondition for the resumption of the operation of the idled reactors.

Noda and the 3 ministers are to meet again later this week to discuss the necessary safety measures.
