The International Atomic Energy Agency is in Japan to help devise a clean-up plan to prevent further radiation contamination, following the nuclear accident at TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant in March of this year.

The mission, requested by the Japanese Government, is made up of 12 international experts from several countries and IAEA experts who will visit Japan from 7 to 15 October 2011. Mission Leader Juan Carlos Lentijo, the General Director for Radiation Protection at Spain’s nuclear regulatory authority, said: “At the end of the mission, a preliminary summary report will be provided to the Government of Japan and be made publically available.”

The final report of the International Remediation Expert Mission will be presented to the Japanese Government next month.
