JP Gov to raise the dose limit from 100mSv to 250mSv of nuclear workers in case of emergency

On 7/30/2015, Radiation council of Japanese government  admitted the reform bill to raise the dose limit from 100 mSv to 250 mSv of nuclear plant workers in case of emergency.

The amendment act will be in effect next April.

The reform bill had been submitted by NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) and Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.

In 311, the government of Japan temporarily raised the dose limit from 100 mSv to 250 mSv as exceptional measures.

However, these members of Radiation council were appointed by NRA itself back in April 2014.

Le Gouv JP va relever de 100 à 250 mSv la limite de sécurité des cas d’urgence pour les travailleurs du nucléaire


Le 30 juillet 2015, le Conseil sur la Radioactivité du gouvernement japonais a accepté un projet de loi visant à relever la dose maximale admissible en cas d’urgence pour les travailleurs du nucléaire de 100 à 250 mSv.

L’arrêté d’application entrera en effet en avril prochain.
La révision de la loi avait été transmise par la NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) et le ministère de la Santé, du Travail et des Affaires Sociales.
En mars 2011, le gouvernement japonais avait provisoirement relevé cette limite de 100 à 250 mSv à titre exceptionnel.
En avril 2014, ces membres du conseil sur la radioactivité étaient rétribués par la NRA elle-même.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
