Fund administration

In June, 2000, "the Designated Radioactive Waste Final Disposal Act" that prescribes designation of an organization to manage the final disposal fund was enacted, and in November, RWMC was designated as the organization by METI. Following the designation, RWMC newly established "the fund administration division" and started to manage the fund related to high-level radioactive waste accumulated by Nuclear Waste Management Organization of Japan (NUMO). Along with this, we established "Rules of information disclosure on the fund administration" and "Rules of ethics on the fund administration" to disclose appropriate information and maintain ethics of the related officers and employees. Furthermore, in April, 2008, RWMC also started to manage the final disposal funds related to TRU waste subject to geological disposal.
