The OECD/NEA is launching a new project named "Analysis of Information from Reactor Buildings and Containment Vessels of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (ARC-F)" Project. This project will serve as the successor to the precedent NEA project, "Benchmark Study of the Accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (BSAF) Phase II" which investigated the accident scenarios, associated fission products behavior in the damaged units and source term to the environment. The ARC-F project comprises three tasks: Task 1: Refinement of analysis for accident scenarios and associated fission product transportation and dispersion; Task 2: Compilation and management of data and information; and Task 3: Discussion for future long-term project. Japan Atomic Energy Agency is the operating agent, responsible to lead all the tasks. Duration of the project is from January 2019 to December 2021 and the final report is planned to be published in 2022.

The decommissioning of the Fukushima-Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant has required and will continue to demand conducting many challenging activities, many of which do not have prior experience in the nuclear industry. International decommissioning knowledge and technology advances will be required to support the challenging work. The Collaborative Laboratories for Advanced Decommissioning Science (CLADS) was established by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) in April 2015. The main objectives of CLADS are the management, research and development for decommissioning at the Fukushima-Daiichi site. Not only is the coordination of research and development important to effective decommissioning, but also the management of research activities around the world. A status of the CLADS program will be provided. The CLADS central research office will be located at Tomioka Town, near the Fukushima site, in April 2017.

JAERl is conducting nuclear safety research primarily at the Nuclear Safety Research Center in close cooperation with the related departments in accordance with the Annual Plan for Nuclear Safety Research issued by the Nuclear Safety Commission. The fields of conducting safety research at JAERl are the engineering safety of nuclear power plants and nuclear fuel cycle facilities, and radioactive waste management as well as advanced technology for safety improvement or assessment. This report summarizes the nuclear safety research activities of JAERI from April 2001 through March 2003.

The concept of clearance has been introduced by the International Atomic Energy Agency in 1996 and is very useful for the management of very low-level solid materials generating from the decommissioning of nuclear facilities. Therefore, the European Commission (EC) derived the specific clearance levels for metals, buildings and building rubble in RP 89 and 113, respectively. The EC also derived the general clearance levels for all solid materials generating from the regulated facilities in RP 122. Comparing the clearance levels of Japan with the unrounded levels of EC, the differences of levels are small. The biggest difference is found in Fe-55 and the EC's clearance level is about one fifth of Japanese clearance level. This is caused because the EC considers the direct ingestion of cleared building rubble by children and used the conservative ingestion rate of it. EC's discussions related to the clearance levels are very useful for Japan to derive our own clearance levels and to clear materials from regulatory control.

The concept of clearance has been introduced by IAEA in 1996 and is very useful for the management of very low-level solid materials generating from the decommissioning of nuclear facilities. Therefore, the Nuclear Safety Commission of Japan started the derivation of clearance levels for solid materials arising from nuclear reactors in 1997 and published the reports in 1999 and 2001, respectively. EC also published the several guides to clear metals, concrete, building and other solid materials from regulatory control. Some organizations including IAEA and USNRC are still discussing how to derive the clearance levels. In this exposition, the present status of clearance in Japan and other organizations and countries is summarized. And some information to realize the concept of clearance is given, and the problems related to the clearance are also discussed.
