TEPCO's Efforts towards Nuclear Reform
TEPCO strongly wishes to be a nuclear power plant operator which has the world's highest level of safety awareness, engineering capabilities and risk communication ability with society.
Thus, we established the "Nuclear Reform Special Task Force" led by our president in order to reform TEPCO's safety culture, safety measures, disaster prevention measures, risk/crisis control protocol, information disclosure, and risk communication methods.
At the same time, we established "Nuclear Reform Monitoring Committee" which is comprised of domestic and overseas experts and monitors our reform implementation and progress from a purely external point of view as an advisory organization.
We will implement management and safety culture reforms under this new organizational framework.
