[FAQ]
Q1. How does MAFF deal with products exempt from shipment restraints not to be affected by the accident of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant of TEPCO?
A1. MAFF considers providing accurate information to all of consumers, processors and distributors utmost important. Therefore, in cooperation with related ministries such as Ministry of Welfare, Labor and Health, MAFF has provided prompt information on the result of inspections as well as extensive information on the concept of the provisional regulation value of radioactive substances and the accurate knowledge on the extend of the impact of radioactive substances to human bodies, etc. In addition, MAFF not only issues notices to processors and distributors to ask their efforts to ensure the smooth distribution and consumption based on the scientific and objective ground, but also gathers entities of distribution market such as retail companies to require the same matters mentioned above. MAFF will continue to provide accurate information in the future.

Q2. In regard of products under the shipment restraint, can the cost of return processing and their disposal be compensated at the distribution level such as wholesale markets?
A2. According to the Law concerning Compensation for Nuclear Damage, the compensation caused by the accident of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant of TEPCO is considered based on “the judgment criterion of the extent of nuclear damage” which will be decided by Nuclear Damage Compensation Dispute Judgment Committee in accordance with the Law concerning Compensation for Nuclear Damage.
Government is now proactively discussing the compensation for farmers requested for the shipment restraints. Given this situation, the discussion on the coverage of compensation for food industries including distributors will be preceded.
Therefore, evidential documents of unsold, returned and disposed products should be kept to prepare for further responses until the coverage of compensation becomes clear in the future.
