Applying nuclear lessons from Fukushima disaster - Fertel

Source(s):  CQ Roll Call

Marvin S. Fertel, the president and chief executive officer of the Nuclear Energy Institute comments for Roll Call the agreement of the nuclear energy industry, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and government policymakers on the need to apply relevant lessons learned from recent events in Japan to enhance safety at U.S. nuclear energy facilities. He says we have not learned everything we need to know from the events in Japan and calls for federal regulators and the industry to continue to focus on implementing the NRC’s updated emergency preparedness requirements, resolving seismic issues, implementing new fire-protection guidelines and licensing activities for existing and new reactors. "Although it is highly unlikely that any U.S. nuclear energy facility would ever suffer the devastating effect of a combined earthquake and tsunami, Fukushima has rightfully triggered another hard look at the safety and security of America’s reactors."
