Japan will release waste water from the Fukushima nuclear plant into the sea starting today (August 24).

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant suffered a core meltdown in 2011 as a result of the earthquake and tsunami that happened during that time.

According to a Twitter post by BERNAMA, the Malaysian Ministry of Health (KKM) will impose Level 4 (Surveillance) inspections at our country’s borders and entrances on high risk food products imported from Japan for analysis of radioactive material content.

“The waste that will be released is the remaining water used to cool the reactor,”

“Since there is no more water storage space left, the water is supposed to be channeled into the ocean through a kilometer long tunnel. The disposal of 1.3 million tons of water is expected to take 30 years,” BERNAMA further explained.

Based on a report by Malaysia Gazette, KKM Director General Datuk Muhammad Radzi Abu Hassan shared that, in Malaysia, radionuclide contamination is controlled under Regulation 37, Food Regulations 1985.

While the international standard Codex has issued the General Standard for Contaminants and Toxins in Food and Feed, CXS 193-1995, as a guide for the control of radionuclide contamination in food.
