EU to Ease Restrictions Imposed on Japan Food Products after Fukushima

TOKYO The European Union is planning to ease restrictions on fishery products from Japan imposed after the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, Kyodo news reported on Saturday.

The new agency citing Japanese officials said European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker spoke about the plan with Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe when they met on Sept. 27 in Brussels.

Before the end of the year, the EU is set to lift the restrictions on Japanese fishery products, the agency said.

The plan is to remove initially import restrictions on products from Iwate and Miyagi prefectures, located north of Fukushima.

Imports from these prefectures no longer need radiation inspection certificates, according to the officials.

The European Union countries along with China, South Korea, and the United States that have imposed restrictions on the import of food products from Fukushima and adjacent regions.

Japan has been trying to convince the countries that the products from the region have scientifically been tested and proven to be safe.

The EU lifted the restriction on rice from the Fukushima prefecture in 2017.

The Fukushima nuclear accident caused by an earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011, is the second-worst in history after the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.
