Good evening Josh,

I am requesting a copy of the NRC’s recommendations on severe accident management measures for the Fukushima-Daiichi plant. Last week during a periodic TA briefing, I requested a copy of the NRC’s recommendations. Other Commission offices have subsequently requested a copy of the recommendations and supporting analysis. These recommendations supposedly represent a U.S. Government consensus position on additional accident management measures. The recommendations were coordinated with GE-Hitachi, EPRI, INPO, Naval Reactors, and DOE. My understanding is that this severe accident report was provided to Ambassador Roos and will be shared with NISA and TEPCO.

Last week, the ET had a caveat that the recommendations were in flux because our NRC team in Tokyo had provided feedback to the ET/RST regarding the most current situation of the Fukushima-Daiichi reactors. The ET also noted yesterday (3/26) that Ambassador Roos wanted high-level organizational approval by the involved USG agencies and organizations before he would move forward to engage his counterparts in the Japanese government. This evening during the TA briefing, Brian Sheron stated that the final recommendations have received high-level NRC approval and that I was to check with you to obtain a copy
