The Nuclear Regulation Authority has disclosed an outline of new safety standards for nuclear power plants. They include obligatory measures to cope with a large-scale natural disaster and terrorist attacks.

Currently these measures are taken voluntarily by nuclear power plant operators. After listening to opinions from the public, the NRA will enforce the new standards from July. It is imperative that power companies strictly follow them.
