At the review meeting on June 10, 2016, where the first session related to the ground was held, we explained the summary of the evaluation of the seams at the site, the progress in the increase of data (which was included in the "future challenges" in the evaluation document at the expert meeting), and other issues.
In response to Hokuriku Electric Power Company’s explanation, the Secretariat of the Nuclear Regulation Authority gave a comment to the effect that the Company should provide an overview of the structure spreading in the site and explain the faults that the Company would evaluate and the reason for selecting them.
At the review meeting on March 10, 2017, Hokuriku Electric Power Company explained the selection of the evaluation target faults, with the sampling of a wide range of faults at the site, including the portions that might have been active during periods before the seams were active, on the basis of the comment given at the previous review meeting. At the review meeting on June 23, the Company explained the outline of the additional survey plan pertaining to the selection of the evaluation target faults.
We believe that continued explanation at future review meetings based on detailed data will certainly lead to the recognition of the inactivity of the faults at the site.
