Cross-ministerial monitoring confirms Fukushima water releases within safe limits


At Thursday's weekly Cabinet meeting, Premier Chen Chien-jen received a briefing from the Executive Yuan's Atomic Energy Council on the government's response to the release of treated radioactive wastewater from Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The premier said that according to the safety review conducted by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Japan's discharge of radioactive wastewater is consistent with international safety standards. In addition, Taiwan's own observation teams have gathered data over the course of three visits to Japan and judged that the wastewater release falls within international safety standards.

The premier emphasized that relevant ministries and agencies have cooperated to deploy proactive measures, following the principles of scientific evaluation, strict monitoring based on international standards, and protecting the safety and health of the Taiwanese people. The government will continue to strengthen monitoring, testing and other appropriate response measures to wastewater releases from the Fukushima power plant. The results of monitoring by all relevant ministries and agencies have shown no emergence of abnormal radiation to date.

The premier said that the government has established an open and transparent information platform that uses popular science to explain the various monitoring and evaluation results. The government will continue to keep abreast of the latest developments from Japan and the IAEA to ensure wastewater releases from the Fukushima power plant conform to international safety standards, which the premier hopes will ease concerns and set people's minds at rest.
