Mainichi gave top play to the finding that the U.S. urged Japan in April 2020 to review its law and regulations banning the disposal of low-level radioactive waste overseas so that U.S. companies could receive orders from Japan to dispose of such nuclear waste. The paper wrote that as a result, the GOJ decided to review its regulations to make it possible for Japan to export some of the equipment generated from decommissioning reactors. The paper pointed out that the finding highlights Japan’s reliance on foreign capital in its nuclear policy.
