The JMTR is a light water cooling tank typed reactor with first criticality in March 1968. The JMTR has been applied to fuel/material irradiation tests for LWRs, HTGR, fusion reactor and RI production. However, the JMTR operation was once stopped at August 2006, and the refurbishment works are now conducting. The reactor facilities will be renewed taking four years from the beginning of FY 2007, and necessary examination and works are carrying out on schedule. The renewed JMTR will be started from FY 2011, and be operated for a period of about 20 years until around FY 2030. The usability improvement of the JMTR, e.g. higher reactor availability-factor, shortening turnaround time to get irradiation results, attractive irradiation cost, business confidence, is also discussing with users as the preparations for re-operation. In the paper, status of the refurbishment of reactor facilities are introduced, moreover the future program using the JMTR will be prescribed.
