Japan’s New Nuclear Agency Shuts Down Public Document Access

The new nuclear regulatory agency in Japan intended to bring more public disclosure and transparency to the industry has closed the public nuclear documents library.

As the agency transitioned from the old agency (NISA) to the new one (NRA) no provision was made to move or keep open the library. This library contains important nuclear documents and public records. The records included things like application documents and safety reports. After the Fukushima nuclear disaster about 100 people a day used the library.

This action comes on the heels of criticism of the agency for blocking many reporters from their press conferences and forbiding reporters from entering the agency’s new offices.
