QDo international agencies conduct regular checks related to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station disaster?
AThe International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has so far conducted four reviews.

The IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) has commissioned a team of nuclear power experts to conduct international reviews of conditions and initiatives related to decommissioning of the reactors and contaminated water, and the results of these reviews are in the public domain.

Following the accident, the "Mid- and Long-Term Roadmap towards the Decommissioning of TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station" stipulating the basic approach and major target processes, etc. in advancing the decommissioning of TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station was compiled by the central government.

Responding to requests by the Government of Japan, the IAEA has implemented international peer review missions related to this roadmap four times: in April 2013, November-December 2013, February 2015, and November 2018. The findings of the reviews have been compiled into reports that are also publicly disclosed on the IAEA website.
