11th Ministerial Level Meeting


Resolution of the 11th FNCA Ministerial Meeting
November 18, 2010
Beijing, China

We, the Heads of delegations of FNCA member countries, the Commonwealth of Australia, the People's Republic of Bangladesh, the People's Republic of China, the Republic of Indonesia, Japan, the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, the Republic of the Philippines, the Kingdom of Thailand, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam,

1. Recalling that it was decided to work for further promoting the cooperation in enhancing the peaceful use of nuclear technology for sustainable socio-economic development in member countries and in the Asian region at the 10th Ministerial Level Meeting held in Tokyo, Japan in December 2009,
 
2. Stressing that nuclear power is seen by many countries to be one of the practical means that can contribute to ensure both the secure supply of energy and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the course of realizing a low-carbon society, and that ensuring nuclear safety, security and non-proliferation/safeguards is the prerequisite for the promotion of nuclear power,
 
3. Recognizing that, nuclear technology had contributed to the reduction of hunger and poverty such as by increasing food production through radiation-induced mutation breeding, bio-fertilizer etc., and emphasizing that nuclear technology can also improve human health and save lives through early diagnosis of diseases by nuclear medicine and through radiotherapy for treatment of cancer.
 
4. Noting that at the second meeting of the "Study Panel on the Approaches Toward Infrastructure Development for Nuclear Power" held in Seoul, Republic of Korea on 1st and 2nd July, 2010, the practical experience of the countries that have already introduced nuclear power plants (China, Japan, and Republic of Korea) and the needs and challenges of the countries that are planning to newly introduce nuclear power plants were shared among those member countries and that they exchanged meaningful opinions,
 
5. Noting that at the Meeting on Development of Regional Network for Research Reactor Utilization and Isotope Production/Supply held on 17th September, 2010 in China, the information of current status and future plans of isotope production and research reactor utilization were shared among those member countries and they agreed the importance of building regional networks for stable supply of isotopes and efficient, safe use of research reactors,
 
6. Noting that at the Meeting on Technology Transfer from Research to Commercial Application held in the Philippines on 12th November, 2010, experiences on technology transfer to commercial sector for radiation application were shared and the importance of the establishment of mechanisms to support end-users of new technologies for radiation application by government was agreed,

Decided to work toward:

(1) Enhancing mutual efforts for nuclear infrastructure development, in particular the infrastructure for nuclear safety, security and nonproliferation / safeguards, recognizing that this infrastructure is essential for the safe and peaceful use of nuclear energy;
 
(2) Assuring nuclear safety by sharing experiences and lessons learned including those related with natural hazards, such as earthquake, tsunami and volcanic eruption, that occur frequently in the Asian region, and recognizing it is important to ensure safety of the new nuclear plants by adopting international safety standards, aiming at high level of safety, which is in the common interest of Asian neighboring countries;
 
(3) Promoting commercialization of the radiation and isotope applications by strengthening linkage with end-users in the relevant fields, with necessary assistance from government to achieve tangible results from these applications;
 
(4) Exploring possible mechanisms for facilitating application of nuclear techniques developed at national research institutes to commercial use, including support for commercial end-users to approach the first industrial application with certain financial risk;
 
(5) Establishing networks for sharing and efficient utilization of existing research reactors in the manufacture of isotopes (including 99Mo) and other applications;
 
(6) Exploring effective and efficient means of promoting FNCA activities, including networking with other multilateral nuclear technology cooperation programs such as the regional cooperation coordinated by the IAEA, and utilization of PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) practice for improving outcomes and customer satisfaction for each FNCA project; and
 
(7) Enhancing cooperation in human resource development, especially with regard to ensuring the safe, secure and safeguarded use of nuclear power, and stressing importance of optimizing regional cooperation and coordination of assistance via facilitating the intensive use of ANTEP.

In addition, the nine member countries who signed the Joint Communique in 2007 and the two member countries who joined FNCA in 2010,

Decided to work toward:

(1) Making nuclear power eligible for CDM/JI in a such way that nuclear power is valued in the light of its capability of contributing to GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emission reductions and further consensus-building in the international community;
 
(2) Promoting the call of the nuclear power's advantage in the carbon credit mechanisms, in parallel with the efforts under the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) process, by exploring the possibility of establishing regional and/or bilateral offset credit mechanisms, in such a way as to encourage the investment of supplying countries in developing countries by allowing such supply countries to acquire emission credits; and
 
(3) Sharing practical experiences and lessons learned by nuclear power countries (China, Japan, and Republic of Korea) on such topics as raised by the "Study Panel on the Approaches toward Infrastructure Development for Nuclear Power".
