12th Ministerial Level Meeting


Resolution of the 12th FNCA Ministerial Meeting
December 16, 2011
Tokyo, Japan

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 Viet Nam,

1. Recalling that, at the 11th Ministerial Level Meeting held in Beijing in November 2010, it was decided to enhance mutual efforts for nuclear infrastructure development, in particular the infrastructure for safety, security and safeguards/non-proliferation that is essential for the safe and peaceful use of nuclear technology,
 
2. Emphasizing that it was further decided to work toward 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, 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. Recognizing the importance of sharing information about and lessons learned from the accident at the TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant with society internationally,
 
4. Recognizing that many Asian countries are considering the use of nuclear power for energy supply security as a low carbon energy source,
 
5. Stressing that nuclear technology contributes not only to energy supply through the use of nuclear power but also contributes more broadly to societal wellbeing in the areas of human health, agriculture, industry and the environment,
 
6. Recalling that, it was decided at the 11th Ministerial Meeting held in Beijing in November 2010 to establish a network for sharing and efficient utilization of existing research reactors in the manufacture of isotopes including 99Mo and other applications,

Decided to work continuously toward:

1. Further enhancing cooperation in the field of nuclear safety with a view to applying the highest standards thereof to nuclear facilities in FNCA countries for peaceful use of nuclear energy in Asian region, renewing our recognition that major nuclear accidents can have significant international consequences,
 
2. Sharing knowledge about effective management of natural hazards, such as earthquake, tsunami and volcanic eruption, and lessons learned from the accident at TEPCO's Fukushima NPP to ensure the highest safety of nuclear facilities in the region,
 
3. Cooperating to establish sound nuclear infrastructure, in particular nuclear safety, security and safeguards/non-proliferation, as well as to develop human resources, including through the activities under the FNCA projects on Safety Management Systems for Nuclear Facilities, Radiation Safety and Radioactive Waste Management, and Nuclear Security and Safeguards,
 
4. Promoting practical applications in international society by end-users of the remarkable outcomes of the FNCA projects on mutation breeding for improved crop varieties, bio-fertilizer using micro-organisms as an alternative to chemical fertilizers, plant growth promoter produced by radiation processing of natural polymers, radiotherapy for use in the treatment of cancer patients and nuclear medicine for diagnosis, by strengthening cooperation and linkages with relevant governmental and private sector bodies, as well as enhancing information dissemination to end-users,
 
5. Spreading global recognition that nuclear technologies contribute to socio-economic development namely by their application in the health, agriculture, industry and environmental fields, and spreading the achievements of FNCA projects internationally including mechanisms available through the IAEA,
 
6. Assuring the activity of the project on Research Reactor Network for sharing and efficiently utilizing existing facilities to contribute to stably manufacturing and supplying isotopes including 99Mo for nuclear medicine as well as R&D and human resource development,
 
7. Conducting the FNCA projects utilizing the latest knowledge and information in related research fields, evaluating the outcomes and feedback during project implementation to improve activities toward more effective and more visible execution of FNCA projects, and selecting the FNCA projects based on the outcome, impact and regional needs,
 
8. Collaborating and developing new strategies to enhance the public information concerning nuclear energy, which most FNCA countries see as a safe, economically competitive, low carbon and secure source of energy.
