Nuclear Security Training Site Launches in Japan

A Japanese nuclear security training site formally began operations last week, the Denki Shimbun reported (see GSN, Feb. 7).

The site at the Tokaimura branch of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency would focus on educating representatives from developing nations in the early stages of adopting atomic energy. Training on nuclear counterterrorism, atomic material safeguards, regulations and site planning measures is expected to be offered at the Integrated Comprehensive Support Center for Nuclear Nonproliferation and Nuclear Security for Asia. The facility would use an electronically displayed atomic energy site simulation for work related to secure site layouts.

Japanese Atomic Energy Commission Chairman Shunsuke Kondo and International Atomic Energy Agency Division Director Jill Cooley voiced their hopes for the site at its launch last Friday (Denki Shimbun, Feb. 8).
