The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) announced today that the Japan Nuclear Safety Institute (JANSI) will begin participating in a number of EPRIâs nuclear research programs. Access to the collaborative research results developed through EPRI will support JANSIâs mission to pursue the highest level of safety and performance at Japanâs 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 worldâs nuclear units participate in EPRIâs various nuclear research programs.
To support the relationship between EPRI and JANSI, two EPRI engineers will serve on JANSIâs âTechnical Review Group,â a team of experts from within and outside of Japan tasked with ensuring the objectivity of JANSIâs proposals and recommendations.
