The Security Bureau has formed a task force to conduct a comprehensive review of the Daya Bay Contingency Plan and to formulate a large-scale exercise for early next year.
Under Secretary for Security Lai Tung-kwok told legislators that the plan will be revised with reference to suggestions made by the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Fukushima nuclear incident and the actual situation in Hong Kong.
The review will be completed this year and will cover the latest international nuclear safety standards and contingency measures, the notification mechanism for nuclear incidents, radiation monitoring and assessment in Hong Kong.
Next year's drill will simulate emergency situations to test departments' preparedness and response capability. Nuclear plant operators and Guangdong authorities will be invited to play various roles in the exercise. Public participation in the exercise will also be considered.
