Japan and Turkey edge closer to nuclear pact

Japan and Turkey are in the process of finalizing a pact that if enacted, would lay the legal foundations for Japanese companies to supply nuclear equipment and technology to Turkey.  Japan has reached a tentative agreement with Turkey to transfer its nuclear power technology.

This coming as Japan’s embattled nuclear safety agency, NISA has drawn up basic plans on regulating operators in the effort of preventing serious accidents beyond estimates.  The document calls for protective measures against terrorist attacks and aircraft accidents, similar to the NRC B.5.b program initiated post 9.11.

NISA is planning to hand over the basic draft policy to a new agency overseeing nuclear safety, which has yet to be created.  Any delay in plans to implement the new nuclear safety agency could potentially delay the completion of new safety regulations.
