Efforts towards Nuclear Safety Reform

TEPCO announced its Reassessment of the Fukushima Nuclear Accident and Nuclear Safety Reform Plan in an effort to reaffirm our commitment to the continuous improvement of nuclear safety, which has no bounds.

Thus, we established the "Nuclear Reform Special Task Force" led by our president in order to reform TEPCO's safety culture, safety measures, disaster prevention measures, risk/crisis control protocol, information disclosure, and risk communication methods.

At the same time, we established the "Nuclear Reform Monitoring Committee" as an advisory body for the Board of Directors of TEPCO, organized by global and domestic experts. The Committee monitors and supports TEPCO's nuclear safety reform activities.
