Today, the "Supplement of the Interim Guidelines on Criteria for
Determining Nuclear Damage Indemnification Coverage (Losses due to
Voluntary Evacuation)" was adopted at the Council on Disputes concerning

Regarding the compensation for the damages referred to in the guidelines,
given that the estimated number of target sufferers has increased almost

preparation will be necessary. In accordance with the instructions and
support from the government and municipalities, we will prepare to start
the compensation procedures as early as possible.
