Introduction

The senior leadership of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC's) reactor and preparedness programs visited Japan from February 16- 23, 2014. The purpose of that visit was to provide an opportunity for the group to gain firsthand experiences and insights into the March 2011 accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant site.

This NUREG report is a compilation of personal reflective essays from the group of senior managers and staff that participated in the February 2014 visit to Japan and includes a video of individual interviews and the April 24, 2014 Knowledge Management Seminar: Reflections on Fukushima.

The titles and offices of the senior managers and staff reflect individual positions as of February 2014.
