  2. This event is part of a project following recommendations made on marine monitoring in a report by the IAEA in 2013 related to the decommissioning of FDNPS. The implementation of Marine Monitoring by the end of this year was discussed during the visit of Ms. Lydie Evrard, Deputy Director General of the IAEA to Japan in September this year.
