Japan Nuclear Safety Institute and EPRI to collaborate

The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) announced today that the Japan Nuclear Safety Institute (JANSI) will begin participating in a number of EPRI’s nuclear research programs. Access to the collaborative research results developed through EPRI will support JANSI’s mission to pursue the highest level of safety and performance at Japan’s nuclear power plants.

JANSI was established in November 2012 in the aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi accident as an independent, professional organization dedicated to achieving safety assurance across the Japanese nuclear fleet. The operators of all Japanese nuclear power plants are members of JANSI. More than 75 percent of the world’s nuclear units participate in EPRI’s various nuclear research programs.

To support the relationship between EPRI and JANSI, two EPRI engineers will serve on JANSI’s “Technical Review Group,” a team of experts from within and outside of Japan tasked with ensuring the objectivity of JANSI’s proposals and recommendations.
