Subject: Navigation in the sea area surrounding Japan in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami of 11 March 2011.
1 Current radiation levels in Japan
1.1 In the wake of the earthquake and tsunami off the eastern coast of Japan on 11 March 2011 and the damage to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan, an updated joint press briefing was issued (1 April 2011) by the World Health Organization, the International Atomic Energy Agency, the World Meteorological Organization, the International Maritime Organization and the International Civil Aviation Organization stating that radioactive material from the damaged Fukushima Daiichi Plant is gradually spreading outside Japan into the global atmosphere but at extremely low concentrations that do not present any health or transportation safety hazards. The United Nations Organizations continue to closely monitor the situation and will advise of any changes.
1.2 Japanese authorities confirmed that all international sea ports not damaged by the earthquake and tsunami are operating normally and that no health risk has been detected around the ports, based on the results of measurements of radiation levels by local governments. Further information covering all aspects of the response of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan as well as information regarding the radiation dose in Tokyo Bay can be found on the following websites:
