Description of the Division's activities
The Safety Culture Division assumes and develops activities of the Nuclear Safety Network (NS net) that was established following the JCO accident in 1999, and supports the enhancement of utilities' safety activities.
Peer Review Activities
Peer reviews that are tailored to the corporate structure are implemented periodically for the members of NS net that supports the nuclear fuel cycle of Japan.
The Division supports the operation of power plants, conducting reviews focused on field observation for utilities in cooperation with INPO, which has an ample review record in the United States, and WANO, which conducts international peer reviews. The strengths and areas for improvement are extracted regarding "what efforts are being made to secure nuclear power safety in daily operation" in light of good operating practices of power plants worldwide.
The members of JANTI conduct various operations that support the nuclear power industry and vary in their efforts towards nuclear power safety depending on the character of the business (whether or not nuclear fuel material is used, the amount used, the possibility of criticality, etc.), business size, and regulations. For non-utility members, the Division tailors reviews according to the attributes and needs of each business, and supports the enhancement of the safety culture of each member.
