The NTD Consulting Group has continued to support the Japan Nuclear Safety Institute (JANSI) through the JANUS Company. JANSI, equivalent to INPO in the United States, is working to improve quality and nuclear safety practices for the Japanese commercial nuclear industry. NTD support has included consulting in best industry practices in the areas of quality management assessments and audits, human performance, nuclear safety oversight and performance-improvement. In July 2014, NTD Consulting facilitated a benchmark visit to the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station where JANSI observed a Nuclear Industry Evaluation Program assessment. In November 2014, NTD Consulting conducted a series of seminars on these topics in support of JANSI that included participation by all the nuclear utilities in Japan.
