IAEA and Japan Atomic Energy Agency to work together in Decommissioning, Radioactive Waste Management, and Nuclear Security

The IAEA and the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) have agreed to work together to help countries strengthen technical capacities in decommissioning, radioactive waste management, and nuclear security.

The agreement, valid until 2025, designates JAEA as an IAEA Collaborating Centre, while formalizing and expanding cooperation between the IAEA and JAEA.

"As an increasing number of states pursue nuclear energy, decommissioning and waste management as well as nuclear security are two components essential for its sustainable use" said Toshio Kodama, President of JAEA. "JAEA is determined to work together with the IAEA in this scheme to contribute to the international community in these two important areas."
