In August 2006, operation of the JMTR in JAEA was terminated due to assessment for the operation continuation decision. As a result of the national discussion, the JMTR was decided to continue operation after necessary refurbishment works. The refurbishment was finished in March 2011.However, in March 2011 just after the completion of the refurbishment, the Great-Eastern-Japan-Earthquake occurred, and the JMTR restart were delayed. On the other hand, based on the safety assessments considering the 2011 earthquake new regulatory requirements for research and test reactors have established on Dec., 2013 by the NRA. After evaluation and analyses to the new regulatory requirements were carried out, an application to the NRA was submitted on March, 2015. After taking measures for the safety requirements and the permission by the NRA, the renewed JMTR will be operated for a safety research of LWRs, basic research for nuclear engineering, industrial use, and education and training.
