National Government Agrees on Bills for Joining CSC

At a Cabinet meeting on October 24, the Abe government agreed on bills to be submitted to the Diet regarding Japan’s joining the Convention on Supplementary Compensation for Nuclear Damage (CSC), the purpose of which is to establish an international compensation system for nuclear damage. Related laws are also to be revised. The government will now work for their approval by the Diet.

Previously, when asked about Japan’s joining the CSC, senior vice ministers of relevant ministries and agencies had said the country would aim to try to come to a conclusion as quickly as possible, allowing an adequate system to be put into place in Asia.

The CSC would do the following:

  • Provide concentration of jurisdiction in the state where an incident occurs, and absolute liability for operators, etc.
  • Develop international rules.
  • Enhance a compensation fund through a system of monetary donations.
  • Provide victims with prompt and fair relief / compensation.
