About Guidelines for Red Cross Activities during Nuclear Disasters Committee

 
 The Japanese Red Cross Society (JRCS) established the Red Cross Nuclear Disaster Resource Center (NDRC) following the IFRC General Assembly held in November 2011. The NDRC was given the task of developing the guidelines for JRCS’s nuclear disaster preparedness based on the JRCS’s experiences and lessons from its relief and support activities following the Fukushima Daiichi accident.
 The JRCS needed to make the Guidelines more objective and practical to make sure that the guidelines are effective. Consequently, a committee (the Guidelines for Red Cross Activities during Nuclear Disasters Committee) was established to gather knowledge from within and outside of the JRCS and then examine it.

 The committee members provided their knowledge and information of each specialty and discussed the content of the guidelines at four committee meetings. After those discussions, the final draft of the Nuclear Disaster Guidelines for Preparedness, Response and Recovery was prepared. Some challenges that need to be considered on a continuing basis have been proposed as the challenges to be considered.
