Radiation inspection of exports from Japan

In connection with the radioactive leakage from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station in the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011, the government has been informed of some cases where exports arriving in foreign countries from Japan are subjected to radiation inspection or required to be accompanied by a radiation dose certificate.

To prevent excessive safeguards taken by other governments, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) is explaining to them the safety of Japanese products. At the same time, METI advises those engaged in export to carefully watch regulatory developments in destination countries. Please visit the website of the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO; http://www.jetro.go.jp/world/shinsai/External Site Link ) (in Japanese) to obtain information on regulatory developments in foreign countries.
