The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will dispatch an international expert mission to Japan to assist the country in its planning to remediate the areas off-site from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
Following a request by the Government of Japan, the mission, comprising 12 international and IAEA experts from several countries, will visit Japan between 7 and 15 October 2011. The team will go to several locations in the Fukushima Prefecture and conduct meetings in Tokyo with Japanese officials to:
- Provide assistance to Japan in its plans to manage remediation efforts;
- Review the country's remediation strategies, plans and work; and
- Share its findings with the international community.
At the end of the mission a preliminary summary report will be provided to the Government of Japan and be made publically available.
