The Nuclear Safety Commission concluded on Tuesday a series of discussions with experts on the results of stress tests for two idled reactors at the Oi power plant in Fukui Prefecture and will compile its evaluation in the near future, according to commission Chairman Haruki Madarame.

If the commission approves the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency’s endorsement of Kansai Electric Power Co.’s test results on units 3 and 4, administrative procedures for the first resumption of reactors idled for scheduled maintenance and inspections since the Fukushima nuclear accident will move forward to the final stage.
