Japan was transferred to the Integrated Safeguards (IS) scheme in September 2004. The IS approach for JNC-1 site, including PFPF, was developed to improve the efficiency of safeguards while maintaining the effectiveness and has been implemented since August 2008. JAEA has evaluated the validity of the IS approach for PFPF based on the historical performance over about three-year period. As the result of evaluation, JAEA confirmed the improvement of efficiency of inspection activities and the reduction of the impact of inspection activities on plant operation. On the other hand, the IAEA has also evaluated the validity of IS approach and considered to modify based on the result of its evaluation. In order to maintain or improve the validity of the IS approach, JAEA thinks that it will be necessary to work very closely and honestly with the inspectorate to address this modification process.
