【 Summary of the study panel and Draft report to 13th Ministerial Meeting 】

1. Overview
The purpose of this study panel was to serve as venue for the sharing of information, experiences and lessons learned (LL) among senior officials and experts from the region to build sound national nuclear infrastructure to enable operation of nuclear power in the member countries of FNCA in safe, secure and proliferation-resistant manner. Since the first panel meeting in 2009 in phase III, four panel meetings covered extensively key infrastructure issues. Especially after 3.11, the meetings discussed the accident at the Fukushima-Daiichi NPS including chronology, lessons learned and related topics.
In this meeting, seven topics were discussed;
Update of information, Lessons Learned, future of Japanese NE policy
Emergency preparedness and response
Site characterization
Risk communication
Nuclear Liability
Human Resources Development
Project Management and Funding

2.Update of the Accident at the Fukushima-Daiichi NPS, Lessons Learned from Accident, future of Japanese NE policy
Member countries were briefed on updated status of onsite and offsite situation. Key Lessons learned were explained along the line of defense in depth (DinD); namely, (Level 1-3: Design) protection against natural hazard (especially focus on Tsunami) and plant capability to withstand Station Black Out (SBO) and isolation from Ultimate Heat Sink (UHS), (Level 4: Accident Management and Prevention of large release), and (Level 5: Emergency Plan and Crisis Management). Presentation covered the outline of two Accident Investigation Committees' reports and potential paradigm shift on nuclear safety such as resilience and mitigation regardless of probability of occurrence. Although the Japanese Government had decided on reduced reliance on nuclear power by 2030, the exact extent is yet to be determined based on public consultation. Concern was raised on how Asian countries should reflect on the statement made by Chairman Kurokawa of the Diet Investigation Committee about the cultural element leading to the accident, since similar culture exists in Asian countries. Thailand and the Philippines stated delay of nuclear power programme after 3.11.

3. Emergency Preparedness and Response (EPR)
Relevant to the accident at the Fukushima-Daiichi NPS, a Japanese presentation discussed the timeline of release and of protective action (evacuation orders in response of plant events, rather than dose prediction) taken and the results of evaluation of exposure. Based on the experience of the accident, it was emphasized that there is a need to establish more effective arrangements for nuclear emergency preparedness and response. The EPR guide at the time of the accident did not adequately address offsite protective measures necessary for severe accident conditions and there was some gap from international practices in decision-making approach in implementation of protective actions. At the time of accident, emergency response should be activated for precautionary purposes before actual releases, based on plant conditions rather than on dose predictions. A Working Group for Emergency Preparedness Guide in the Special Committee on Nuclear Disaster in the Nuclear Safety Commission (NSC) is updating the guide.
Country specific EPR reports were given by China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, all of which show that national EPR plans, team(s) have been developed by utilizing expertise of nuclear research center and training & drills have been put in place. In countries considering launching nuclear power programme, EPR plans are evolving to accommodate for nuclear power including installation of local offsite emergency response center.
On the matter of how FNCA member countries, especially among new entrants, will be able to cooperate further, following proposals were made;
1) To consider integration of EPR with conventional disaster control by mobilizing national resources as much as possible, extending EPR to include nuclear power,
2) To involve stakeholders for planning/drills as well as risk communication, right from the preparation stage,
3) To share good practices among FNCA member countries for EPR, and
4) To consider the potential benefit of regional cooperation including notification, sharing of monitoring and measurement data, mobilizing technical expertise and equipments, and setting up directory of contact points (while not trying to create a new framework but utilizing existing group as much as possible such as radiation protection & waste management project) to facilitate speedy response in each country during nuclear emergency.

4.Site characterization
Japan explained recommended coverage in a feasibility study (using IAEA NS-R-3) including site characterization on earthquakes and surface faulting, meteorological aspects, flooding, geotechnical hazards, external human induced events (aircraft crashes, chemical explosions) and Environmental Impact Assessment. Current status of site evaluation by regulation was briefed from the Japanese TSO (JNES) with focus on the new evaluation of linked motion of faults and Tsunami in the light of updated seismic design guide (2006), findings from the earthquake that hit Kashiwazaki-Kariwa NPS (2007) and the accident at the Fukushima-Daiichi NPS (2011). JNES is currently developing Tsunami assessment guide. China is rapidly increasing the number of nuclear power plant sites and its siting standard takes population distribution into consideration and has updated site evaluation standard in line with the IAEA standard. Current concerns in China include protection of water resources, population distribution, flooding caused by dam-break and assessment of non-rock-based site. Vietnam reported the current status of regulation in the country on siting. Bangladesh shared information on the current status of Site Evaluation Report (reviewed by the IAEA) for the planned Rooppur NPS site, which includes assessment of flooding and other natural hazard as well as feasibility of EPR.

5.Risk communication
Japan shared its experience of risk communication on radiation by the Health Physics Society after the accident at the Fukushima-Daiichi NPS and practical examples of Q&A with the public, received mostly from mothers with small children. While positive reactions were observed, it was recognized that "don't worry" type answers tend to stir up more anxiety. The discussion on consensus communication on risk covered 15 traits of risk perception, according to which risk communicator will need to consider how each of them applies to nuclear power. Indonesia discussed experiences from crisis communication and lessons learned from it. Malaysia and the Philippines discussed experience of risk communication during the accident at the Fukushima-Daiichi NPS including issuance of information bulletins. Recognized key issues about crisis communication are a) credibility and trust of risk communicators, and b) how to respond to the rumors and how to avoid spread of rumors preemptively by release of accurate and credible information at an early time.

6.Nuclear Liability
Japan outlined the nuclear liability scheme. With regards to the Convention of Supplemental Compensation (CSC), Japan touched on the need to amend domestic law before joining, although she recognizes the value of convention. In order to provide prompt relief for the victims by the accident at the Fukushima NPS, the Dispute Reconciliation Committee (DRC) for Nuclear Damage Compensation was organized, published guidelines, starting from April 2011, for determining the scope of nuclear damage, and established Nuclear Damage Compensation Dispute Resolution Centre (ADR Centre) for mediation in the course of settlement. The DRC set a rule for compensation to rumor-induced damages as well. Payment by TEPCO started in September 2011, after making provisional payment in April. Based on Fukushima experience, the presenter raised the following points for consideration by newcomer countries;
Commitment by the Government to relief of victims,
Establishing dispute resolution system according to each country's administrative and judicial system,
Harmonization with international standard, and
Promptness and fairness in compensation.

7.Human Resources Development (HRD)
Recommendations to the 13th Ministerial Level Meeting were; (1) formulation of a concrete national HRD plan, (2) efforts to prepare necessary national funds for HRD, (3) establishment of a national network for HRD, (4) defining specific programs which need support of FNCA countries, (5) using the hub as a single focal point for coordination of HRD plan with international cooperation, (6) reviewing the ANTEP implementation in order to better meet with country's needs. Each of the member countries of FNCA reported current national activities for HRD with these recommendations in mind. This panel recognized that;
each country organized a national network for HRD and identified a focal points shown in the attachment,
here remains significant challenge for development of necessary professionals (in terms of quantity and quality) to launch and support nuclear power programme,
China reported how the country is responding to meet demand for nuclear professionals; 47 universities offer nuclear related courses and actions are funded by the government and industry. China also announced that the international training center on nuclear power construction established in cooperation with IAEA is open to all IAEA member states,
Kazakhstan, Republic of Korea, China and Japan are organizing international activities on HRD,
Meeting confirmed that statement of head of delegation of 13th Ministerial Level Meeting included the national HRD network setting and strategy of nuclear HRD.

8.Project Management and Funding
The presentation by an expert in financing discussed;
Concerns of the financial community surrounding nuclear power projects and the classic risks associated with them such as completion risk,
The crucial role of the Government which can be implemented using various tools such as loan guarantee, carbon pricing, to drive market behaviour to achieve a long-term goal for energy policy,
Various financing and project development techniques, taking due notice of current trends in the marketplace, such as vendor equity (Visaginas, Lithuania), Build-Own-Operate (Akkuyu, Turkey), the multiple owner (Olkiluoto, Finland) and multiple offtake (Exeltium/France; Blue Sky/Belgium), and government-to-government (Russian) models, regional model involving several member states,
Why project financing has never been used for a nuclear power project, and
Importance of export credit agencies in the financing of nuclear power projects.
Finally, the presentation noted, a project must be considered at two levels: first, "How will the lenders get paid back?", and second, "Lender concerns about 'Reputational Risk'".

9.Next study panel meeting
For the upcoming panel, the following candidate topics were discussed;
Continued dialogue on infrastructure necessary for assuring nuclear safety and relevant regional cooperation through in-depth discussion on key issues, while avoiding overlap with other relevant activities (site assessment, EPR, liability, updating of the accident information, and others),
Legal arrangement with focus on security and safety,
Risk communication and stakeholder involvement.
