ABSTRACT
The article reports that the involvement of countries and of international organisations such as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in shaping safety standards in the use of nuclear energy does improve the level of nuclear safety. It informs that Japan's investigation of the Fukushima Daiichi accident in 2011 clearly concludes that it was a man-made disaster. The article also argues that it is up to political leaders to decide on internationalising nuclear power regulations.
