Aoto, Kazumi ; Chikazawa, Yoshitaka ; Okubo, Tsutomu; Okada, Keizo*; Ito, Takaya*

Overview of Japan Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor (JSFR) development status and reflection of lessons learned from the TEPCO's Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant (1F) accident have been summarized. JSFR was recognized as a promising next generation nuclear reactor. Even though the JSFR safety design already took into account measures against severe accident situations and passive safety features such as passive shutdown system and natural convection decay heat removal systems in the 2010 design version, it is become aware of importance of design measures against severe accidents and extreme external events by the 1F accident. As recent activities, external hazard evaluations and design improvements reflecting lessons learned from 1F accident have been conducted. This paper also discusses importance of development of global safety design criteria and international Research and Development cooperation on safety design measures.
