Rokkasho Fault Review

An international team co-ordinated by MCM reviewed on-site active faulting at the JNFL Rokkasho site in north Japan. The objective was to undertake an independent review of JNFL’s evaluation of faults onsite, and to make a judgment on the activity of faults based on new definitions of active faults as outlined by the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA). An additional project to assess the potential activity of a major offshore fault using a BBN is currently being developed.
