IAEA CHIEF: Much work remains to improve global nuclear safety
News Date: 27th August 2012


A lot more needs to be done to implement lessons from the Fukushima nuclear disaster and to upgrade nuclear safety measures around the world, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Yukiya Amano, said Monday in Vienna.

In the one and a half years since the accident in Japan, countries have taken important steps such as finding weak spots in nuclear power plants and improving preparations for emergency situations, Amano said.

But he added: "Much work remains to be done and we must not relax our guard."

The Vienna-based nuclear agency reported this month that much progress has been made in implementing the plan, but that there was still room for improvement.

For example, countries need to find better ways to inform the public about nuclear accidents, and more governments should submit to international reviews of their safety measures, the IAEA said.

"The accident may have faded from the international headlines, but it is essential that all of us – member states, the IAEA and other key stakeholders - maintain our sense of urgency and our commitment to implementing the action plan in full," Amano said.

He was speaking at the start of a week-long conference that aims to improve the international Convention on Nuclear Safety in the wake of Fukushima.
